“The restore process was aborted to avoid an operating system bug that can cause an important disk sub-system to hang and disk writes to fail until a reboot” is observed

this error is reported when BackupAssist considers that accessing historical backup may cause OS hang and subsequent crash. One of the factors that can trigger this condition is if a hang has been previously detected by BA on this machine while accessing a historical backup. An indicator for this is the registry value VhdmpHangWasObserved=True, which is present in the user machine’s registry.to resolve the issue the server should be rebooted and the registry key removed before attempting the restore again
