Server Back Up Fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Recently installed WHS2011 and set up client computer and server backups as part of the set up process.

    Client computer back up seems to be working fine.

    Server backup worked initially, then only worked partially (WHS reported that some files/folders were not backed up) and now does not work at all. 

    The error message I get via the Dashboard is - "The shadow copy of the source volume cannot be found".  Really have no idea what this means or how to go about resolving.

    I am backing up selected server volumes and folders only to an external USB drive.  If I unplug the USB drive from the server and plug it into my laptop I can see the backup files created prior to the recent failures.

    Any thoughts / suggestions for resolving this would be much appreciated.

  • Hi, Tricksy,

    You can reconfigure the backup policy and have a try.

    Best Regards,
