Server Backup Wizard Fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • Server Essentials 2012. I tried running the server backup wizard on my Fantom Drives 1TB drives over USB and they didn't work. So, I switched to esata and I'm still getting the same error:

    Cannot complete the Set up Server Backup wizard
    An error occurred while configuring the backup policy. 
    Ensure all  the hard drives chosen for the backup destination
    are connected, or exclude those backup drives that are offline.
    Also, ensure all the hard drives that are to be backed up are
    connected to the server, powered on and writable, and then try
    again. If the problem persists, check for storage related errors.

    I also find in System logs in Event Viewer:

    <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">
    - <System>
      <Provider Name="Virtual Disk Service" 
      <TimeCreated SystemTime="2013-12-12T01:28:11.000000000Z" /> 
      <Security /> 
    - <EventData>

    Ideas?  I'd love to back up my server.
