Recently, I deleted an Unused SharePoint Service Account in AD after figuring out we were not using that service account for any Service in SharePoint. This service account was also local admin on the server. As I did this I could not start the Volume Shadow copy service and whenever I try to start it I would get initiation error message and the application log would have the following error
Event Type: Error
Event Source: VSS
Event Category: None
Event ID: 12289
Time: 8:59:06 AM
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error LookupAccountName( NULL, [ServiceAccountName], NULL, p, NULL, p, p). hr = 0x800706fc.

Blah blah Blah…..
I tried rebooting the server, same error reappeared.
I was not able open the tab Shadow Copies from properties of any disk drive…
