Problem Mounting a Backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying trying to do a restore from a Window Home Server Backup. When I select any of the Saved Backups and attempt to open and view the files it get to about 97% and then gives a error "Can not Mount the Backup" With not a single indication of why Frustrating!

    Wondering if anyone has seen this and resolved

    I'm Running Vista Hm Prem

  • Did you try opening the backups from more than one client PC?
    Have you already tested a reboot of both the server and the client?
    Can you find any related messages in the event log of the client or the server?
    If you have a spare USB or internal harddisk, which is big enough, can you try to use ClientRestoreWizard.exe from C:\Program Files\Windows Home Server on a running client to restore the entire volume to that drive?
    Independent of the outcome I would recommend to register on Microsoft Connect and issue a bug report, since such issues are often related to individual configurations, which are hard to recreate by Microsoft.
