This product appears to run reasonably on Windows 8.1 Pro. However, LOGs report throws the following error : "Volume Shadow Copy error: Incorrect function". GFI is no longer supporting this product. They discontinued it 1st Jan 2013. Is there something that I can do to overcome this?

Unfortunately, Volume Shadow Copy is a service provided by Microsoft that was discontinued before Windows 8 was lunched. This happened because Microsoft introduced File History feature in Windows 8 that allows to back up your files and restore them whenever you want. To find out more about this feature, visit the following website. Due to all this, there is no way to overcome the error that you encounter.
