WHS 2011 - Can't Backup Windows 8 PC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi - I'm sure this has been discussed - don't know if there is an answer:

    WHS 2011 - I can backup my Windows 7 PC just fine.

    I can't backup my Widows 8 PC.       "An error prevented backup from running"

    Perhaps it is not supported? You might need more detailed info from me.

    Thanks for any ideas.

  • Probably caused by the EFI/GPT installation of W8. You need to install the WHS2011 Hotfix that fixes this problem: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2781272/en-us
