Unable to Backup computer with Windows Home Sewrver RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a customer with Windows Home Server and 2 computers.  One of the computers appears to be backing up OK, but the other fails at 6%.  The error message is "The Backup failed because of an error reading data from your hard drive.  To Resolve the problem, try running 'Chkdsk /f /r' on each of your hard drives and restart your computer."

    Running chkdsk did nothing.  Reinstalling the connector was equally ineffective.  Repairing the database also did not resolve the issue.

    I saw a suggestion to run chkdsk on the home server disks, but chkdsk requires a drive letter.  How does one run Chkdsk on WHS?

    What do I have to do to backup the second computer?
