Homebuilt WHS suddenly won't back up or connect with console RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've got a home server that's been running fine.

    All the sudden, I can't connect with the console. I get the "something is not working properly" message, and the console flashes for a second, and then there's just a blue screen for a minute, and then I get a "console disconnected" message. Also, the "backup now" option is grayed out.

    I can rdt in, and see my drives (2 500 gig), but the videos I have in shared folders are not accessible, even though they show up in explorer, and in the network share on the client machine. Backup service is not running, and when I try to start it, it stops immediately. Log shows a "there is not enough free space to start backup" message, even though my storage is not even half full. I ran chkdsk on c: drive, d: drive, and fs\4 drive, and everything checks out ok.

    Anybody have any ideas?

  • Did a re install and everything seems to be fine.
