For a SQL 2005 server, I see that there are log entries for database backups for both the type=DISK(according to job schedule) and type=VIRTUAL_DEVICE(at a fixed time each day). I stopped the 'SQL Server VSS Writer' service to see if this helps get rid of the VIRTUAL_DEVICE but to no avail.
For a SQL 2000 server, even when there are no backup jobs, there are log entries for database as well as log backups of type=VIRTUAL_DEVICE.Plus, there is no 'SQL Server VSS Writer' Service in 2000, if this is thought to be the one creating these virutal backups.
I just wanted to get rid of the backup log entries of type=VIRTUAL_DEVICE.
Any help or suggestion would be appreciated.
