Backup service not running error RRS feed

  • Question

  • The various threads about this error are pre-WHS2011, so the fixes are not helping.  Some of the threads, in fact most, say to re-install the OS.  I find a little odd that a lot of fixes include this step.  Seriously, must I re-install this OS for nearly all errors?  That is insane.  Anyway, I have tried backing up the clients from both the server side and the client side, both fail.  Each time I restart the service it immediately shuts down and gives a pop-up saying something is shutting it down.  The server backs itself up on the same external USB drive every night without fail.  The drive is 1TB.  The OS backup is maybe 30gig.  I am trying to back up one client that has maybe 100gig worth of data on it.  What I am getting at here is the external has enough room for both backups to fit.

  • Another thing I am seeing is the ext USB drive 'losing' the drive letter. I'll set it to any available letter and a little while later it drops and has assigned drive letter again.
