In the log files (C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup\FLRSessions\Windows\FLR__<vm_name>_\VeeamAgent.MountVm.Client.log) you may observe following error code:

[05.09.2016 18:30:14] <  4728> mnt| Virtual space {b7ac05db-bfce-41fb-8d5c-780993e049de} was destroyed

Cause

Windows environment variables for local system (SYSTEM) are missing or not set.

Solution

You need to recreate missing values in the following registry key on Windows with Remote Shell running: 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment 

Name: TMP 
Type: Expandable String Value 
Value: %SystemRoot%\TEMP 

Name: TEMP 
Type: Expandable String Value 
Value: %SystemRoot%\TEMP

Afterwards please restart Windows.
