Can't backup shared folders on WHS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I set up my WHS to back up my shared folders to a separate drive installed on the server. The set up procedure went well, then I started getting error messages that the backup was failing. Now when I open the console and go into the computers and backup screen and click on the server name the configure backup option is grayed out.  When I click on view backups, the console freezes, then closes.

  • Hi,
    could be, that you face a troubling disk and these instabilities are a result of this.

    Please login to the desktop of your server and check the Event log in Control Panel/Administrative Tools for errors or warnings, which could be related.

    Can you still access the Shared folders (and the files in them) via Shortcut "Shared Folders on Server" and also the drive, on which the backups shall be stored, in Windows Explorer?

    Is enough space free on the C: drive of your server?

    Best greetings from Germany
