Event ID 55: The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable. …

In my Hyper-V server I get an error message in the event log:

Event ID 55

The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable. Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume

Things I already tried:

mountvol.exe does not list the volume;

vssadmin list writers does not show the volume.

We suspect this happens when Backup Exec makes a shadow copy of a volume as it occurs as the backups are going. But how do we see which volume on which virtual machine is corrupt?
