WHS backups RRS feed

  • Question


    Ever since I changed my primary drive on one of my PC's the WHS Server Backups has been acting up for the PC and failing at regular intervals. When I swapped out the 120Gb drive for a 500Gb drive I had to re-configure the backup for that PC on the WHS Console. But, the wizard still "sees" the old 120Gb drive on the configuration display. At first I though that might be the problem but the configuration display does the same thing for other computers that have had drives changed or in the case of a USB or external drive it still shows up but the selection block is unchecked when the drive is not attached. Any ideas?

  • Hi,

    The server is recording the 'old' drive if you still have backups taken while that drive was installed. The method to clear is to delete backups, remove that computer, and then start again for that Client. You 'might' clear it with just deleting the backups, which could be worthwhile trying first, but it's unlikely.
