    Have you tried looking at the event logs and WHS logs for more info?  You can see the event logs by right clicking on Computer > Manage > Event Viewer > Windows Logs.  The WHS logs should be at C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\Windows Home Server\logs (make sure you enable Show hidden files and folders).

  • Did you run chkdsk /f /r to the drive, for which backup failed, from within a command prompt, which you opened via right click and selecting Run as Administrator?

  • Is that the only error message or do you get something like "WHS was unable to take a snapshot.."? if so do a search for that on this forum (as it has been covered previously)  - what worked for me was following the script which re-registers somme dll files.

    I am not sure, if this will still work that way with Windows 7.

  • actually yes, several times, though it was more of marking the drive for a chkdsk on next reboot, took hours

  • We still did not see any detailed related error messages from the event log of the client.
    Without delivering this kind of information not much can be told.

    Are there still more than 10% free disk space on each volume?

  • Hi,
    you might try to run the script (in a command prompt, started as administrator) from this thread to reregister the VSS components. (Never tested with Windows 7, so no guarantee.)
