Cannot view backups with XP Pro SP2 client RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I'm also having the same problem. When I try to view the files in the backup it says "Cannot connect to the backup service on the server. Verify that all services are running" after 6% progress. I can view them from any of my 3 other machines (2 with XP Pro SP2 and a notebook with Vista) without any problems. It's not critical but sure is frustrating as to "why"!

     

    Any suggestions would be appreciated as Microsoft Support wants to ding me $79 CAD for the answer (if they have one)!

  • You can only view backups as an administrator. Are you logged in to your client as an admin? If you are, are you logged in as the same administrator that installed the connector? There is a known issue with workaround if you are using a different account.
