Error during cleanup task RRS feed

  • Question

  • My client computers have not been able to successfully backup for weeks, so I decided to look into it today.

    I forced the Cleanup task in Task Scheduler to run but it failed after a while, so I ran the same command in cmd.exe

    Here is the output:

    C:\Users\Administrator>"C:\Program Files\Windows Server\Bin\RunTask.exe" /asm:"C:\Program Files\Windows Server\Bin\BackupServerProvider.dll" /class:Microsoft.Wi
    ndowsServerSolutions.DataProtection.PCBackup.ObjectModel.PCBackupServerManager /method:DoCleanup /task:"Cleanup"

    I hope this helps. Thanks.

  • Hello everybody,

    I'm having the very same problem on Windows Server 2012 Essentials. Is there any fix or anything I could at least try to fix it?

    Regards,
