Make sure the "Volume Shadow Copy" service is set to "Manual". Hopefully its only that.

You never mentioned if you checked the VSS service so I'm going to assume to did.

Maybe try and update VSS. This is the service responsible for backing up files even if they are in use which seems to be your problem.

There might be even more recent VSS patches.
