I have done successful backup of DB with filestream enabled using tool.

Now while restoring the backup with rename and relocate the DB, i am getting below error as captured in VSS debug traces.

PreRestore Event

Old snapshot set: {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}
Old operation: -1
Old state: 1
Old failure: 0
Old extended failure hr: 0x1
Old extended failure message: 0
Execution Context: Writer
Writer Class Id: {a65faa63-5ea8-4ebc-9dbd-a0c4db26912a}
Writer Name: SqlServerWriter
Writer Instance Name: SQL Server 2008:SQLWriter
Writer Instance ID: {9b559aa0-57a1-4999-85bb-db0f173d4cbc}'

Do i need to call any specific VSS API before PreRestore activity for FILESTREAM featured enabled?

Kindly do the needful.
