    Total Protection breaks WIndows backup options


      Neither "Create System Image" nor Windows Home Server backups work with McAfee Total Protect real time running. The problem is completely reproducible. Either backup with stop at the first step with real time on and both work fine with it off. Once the backup has started copy files real time can be turn on again and the backups will run to conclusion.


      I suspect it has something to do with the Volume Shadow Copy Service, VSS.


      I did a full clean and reinstall under instruction from support but nothing changes.


      As an aside, if I could turn off real time from the command line, I could fix this with a batch file or using task scheduler - stop real time, start backup, wait a few minutes - restart real time. Anyone know how to do that?
