You are troubleshooting transfers from an Agent or even sluggish Core performance. You suspect that an unecessary VSS provider has been inadvertently installed on the system. You want to quickly clarify if it is a part of the issue you are facing.
To resolve this issue, you need to determine what unnecessary VSS providers are present, remove them and revert to the previous status (if necessary).
Open an elevated Command Prompt and type
vssadmin list providers
After you get the list of providers, identify the unnecessary ones (i.e. ‘Dell EqualLogic VSS HW Provider’) now got to the Registry
If for some reason you need to revert to the initial state, import the previously exported registry subkey and bounce the Volume Shadow Copy service.
