Backup Failed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey guys

    Little bit of a issue here. I'm trying to do the first backup of Home server 2011. Every time i try to do it, i get a error message "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error". I have been doing some googling and really haven't come up with much. I did a chkdsk /r and still nothing. I have a 1TB external that i'm trying to backup to. Here is the weird part. I goto my external and I can see that the backup started (there are a couple back up files there). What in MHS could be causing this issue?

  • If you mean the "System Reserved" partition, that does not have a drive letter and should be backed up by WHS2011. Are you backing up to a USB 3 drive? These have caused problems so make sure that you are using the latest drivers.
