Cannot Back Up WIN 8.1 Laptop RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a laptop running Windows 8.1.  I have successfully installed Launchpad on it from my WHS 2011 server.  i cannot back up the laptop .  The error message says that it cannot back up the laptop drives because it cannot take a snapshot of the drives.  Are there some security settings in WIN 8.1 that need to be adjusted?  I have WIN 7 and WIN XP computers that back up successfully.

  • Have you installed the Windows Home Server 2011 UEFI/GPT Hotfix? Here:


    It's needed to allow backup of UEFI systems, which is pretty much anything new.
