PC Backup Fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having problems with backup on a PC running XP Pro that I hoped someone could help me out with.  It looks like the backup initially begins each night and then quits after a minute or so.  I have also tried a forced backup through the home server console and it times out.  I checked out the Application Logs on the computer that I am trying to backup and it is getting the following error:

     

    Backup set 3 on (my homesserver) failed: Microsoft.HomeServer.Backup.NTFS.NtfsReaderException: FileRecord 62726 has an invalid magic number

     

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?  So far I have reinstalled the Home Server connector software but wasn't sure what to try next.

  • I would run CHKDisk on your home PC and see if it has any errors on its drive.

    <Start>

    <My Computer>

    <Select the Disk drive> <Right Click>

    <Properties>

    <Tools Tab>

    Under <Error Checking>  <Check Now>
