back-up abort with reason 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • My drives check out fine.  The back-up completes d: drive, but then has a problem with my c: drive and gives off this message:

    Not sure of this is related to the above:

  • Hi,
    WHS Backup depends from the VSS service, if that fails, no backup is possible.
    Which permissions are set on C:\ on the PC in question? (The account System should have full control). (The event log entry seems to show, that there is something wrong.)
    Another reason for VSS copies failing can be a too low amount of free disk space on the volume, which you want to backup.

    Best greetings from Germany

  • See e.g. this Technet article.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
