Server backup error after server restart when client backups excluded RRS feed

  • Question

  • My main storage drive (D) is a 2TB RAID 1 array. In addition to the array, I have a scheduled daily server backup to an external USB drive, which includes all of the D drive folders except the client backups folder. This all works fine, with quick daily incremental backups, unless the server is restarted for some reason (such as the for the latest MS updates). The first server backup after a restart "fails" with an alert: "one or more selected items were not included in the backup". The backup details tell me that the client backup folder was not included...yes, I know thanks! I then have to go through setting up the server backup again (where all my previous settings are still there and correct). The next day the server will backup sucessfully, but it will start again with a full backup taking a couple of hours to complete. This seems like a bug to me, so I thought I'd note it down here.
