Disk shadow on Windows 2008

I have try to backup my virtual machines on my Windows 2008.
I have try some scripts found on the Net with "writer verify ...", but no success.
I have simply remove this line and verify if the backup will be OK.

The contents of the DSH script is (Hyper-V_Backup.dsh) :

set context persistent
set metadata c:\metadata.cab
set verbose on

add volume d: alias VirtualMachinesVolume

begin backup

expose %VirtualMachinesVolume% p:
exec C:\Scripts\Hyper-V_Backup\CopyVirtualMachines.cmd
delete shadows exposed p:

end backup

The "CopyVirtualMachines.cmd" is a simple script that use the ROBOCOPY tool to copy the files on the SAN iSCSI.

Useful information :

GSCopy Pro v6.0 (RoboCopy Alternative) with Open File Agent
GSCopyPro is a single command-line tool (CLI) that can copy, replicate and move files from one folder to another. This folder can be on the same machine/ server or another server elsewhere. What makes GSCopyPro stand out from other competitors is the fact it works on 32-bit as well as 64-bit systems and has no restrictions. It can easily be scheduled to run as a scheduled task and fully automated. GSCopyPro also comes with an open file agent which can copy files that are locked/ opened by other processes. This feature is supported in all windows vSCersions from widows XP/ 2003 and later.
