Backup always unsuccessful RRS feed

  • Question

  • WHS 2011 is able to back up my laptop no problem every single time. However, my desktop machine has never successfully been backed up by WHS 2011. I replaced the 'C' drive and reformatted the secondary drive I use for data but still cannot run a backup. Error information very poor and all I am told is "Backup did not succeed. An unknown error prevented backup from completing successfully". I have formatted my drives, run CHKDISK several times...I have no idea what WHS is looking for. I see some references to Volume Shadow but not familiar with this. Is there a setting on VSS I am supposed to make in order for WHS to operate? I have seen several other people with a similar problem but has anyone identified what the solution is? Any help most appreciated.
