Backup Auto-resume RRS feed

  • Question

  • Evening,

     

    Would it be possible for WHS to auto resume backups if there is a break of some description?

    As Tuesday was 'Patch Tuesday', a couple of my computers - both XP SP2- automatically downloaded and installed patches. It appears both computers had to re-start to finalise installation as backups failed with a 'lost network connection' message.

    Now, backup times are set as per default, for all computers and normally, no problems. However, the patches are 'pushed' by Microsoft at their default time, which because I'm on GMT, meant these were received at about 0200 Wednesday, my time - right in the middle of the backup period.

    Alternatively, the Connect software needs to have some intelligence and not allow a re-boot until the backup has completed.
