comment SQL Server 2008 R2 - Cannot create database snapshot
Yes it is NTFS, it is a new server formatted by Windows 2008 R2 and I have replicated the problem using virtual machine. Also when I apply full control permissions to the service account on 'e:\' the snapshot works fine.

Yes that is the file I am trying to create. I have tried to give the service account the SE_MANAGE_VOLUME_NAME permission so it can use instant file initalization but it made no difference.

thank you, i had planned on using a witness but haven't got that far with it yet, if I had two witnesses and a mirror (which is what i'm planning), would I need to lose all three before the principal becomes unavailable?
