The disk signature error "PartMgr" ID 58 may occur on its own or when a virtual machine backup is initiated.
You'll need to check whether there are disks that have the same disk signature.
In the case of Hyper-V, check if any of the VM disks inside the VM have the same disk signature as a host disk.
This error may occur as a result of a Disk2VHD P2V conversion.
The error usually shows up in the Event Viewer System logs:
Log Name: System Source: partmgr Event ID: 58 Task Category: None Level: Warning Description: The disk signature of disk X is equal to the disk signature of disk Y.
To view the disk signature, open the command prompt as administrator and:
The above command lists all disks, then
SELECT DISK N
N is the number of the disk you would like to acces
Now the disk signature will be displayed, such as 0805dae1
To change the disk signature:
UNIQUEID DISK ID=abcdef01
The disk signature wil then be updated to contain the byte value you entered.
