Back up failed because your PC restarted RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have tried to resolve this issue for several weeks not and we keep getting nowhere.

    "Backup failed because your PC restarted."


    Everytime I access the server from the server icon on my screen, it opens and closes itself. I can see all the folders now I can't get to them. It's like there's a program blocking me.

    What is that error message and why can't I seem to find any other reference to it????

    It's been 60 days since my last back up on my desktop. My laptop backs up fine. I have just added another 2Tb to the WHS making it redundant in space capacity for itself.

    I have uninstalled and reinstalled connector.



    A little help would be greatly appreciated.

  • If your laptop backs up and your desktop does not, I'd run a chkdsk /f /r on the desktop. It sounds to me like a hard drive problem. Will the desktop run a manual backup?
