Home Server backup with Win 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Computer backups on the Win 8 computers says "can't take  snapahot of hard drive" I can get to the shared folders but no backup works. I have 3 Win 8 computers - none work.

    please any help?

  • Are your W8 machines built with EFI/GPT? If so you need a Microsoft Hotfix installed on WHS2011 to allow it to back them up.
