  • I don't have an answer, but, I'm interested in the solution since I have the same issue.  It's my Windows 7 client I use for a HTPC.  The only odd thing I can think of is I wiped out the 100 MB partition on mine and only have one partition.  Not sure why it would matter though.   If I can't resolve I'll be reinstalling Windows 7.

  • Did you try already to open a cmd prompt "as Administrator" and run chkdsk /f /r against the drive, for which backup fails?
    Also looking into the event log of the client may help to figure out the cause.

  • I tried the chkdsk /f /r on the client. It found some bad clusters, but, it did not solve the back-up issue.  Same error as before.  I'm going for a reformat of the Windows 7 client as the next step.

  • If there are bad clusters, these may be the reason for Volume Shadow copies fo fail. This should also manifest itself in the event log. Without Volume Shadow copies WHS backup does not work.
    The only method you can try is not only to reformat, but also delete the partition affected by the damaged sectors. Creating a new partition should allow the disk to map these sectors out and give your a clean partition. If this also starts to develop damaged sectors, its time to change the disk.
