Win7 32 bit laptop backup fails to my WHS RRS feed

  • Question

  • My Windows 7 laptop backup recently started failing with an error: "The backup failed because of a problem with your Windows Home Server Connector software." I have no idea why this is happening or what has changed. It was working fine a couple of weeks ago. I uninstalled the connector software, restarted the laptop, connected to the WHS, downloaded & reinstalled the connector software - same results. My laptop has all of the latest Microsoft updates installed.

    Have you tried running chkdsk /r (run as administrator) on the hard drive in your client?

  • I was trying to avoid that since it will take hours. I have a 320GB & a 500GB drive in this laptop. I will try this tonight. Thanks!
