Failure to mount backup...again! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey everyone. I need help! :( I needed to do a restore after 2 years of backups, and I got the dreaded, "cannot mount backup". My post is here: http://forum.wegotserved.com/index.php/topic/15405-cannot-mount-the-backup/ So, I re-installed WHS, and started again. After 8 days of successful backups, I tested a restore, and I was able to browse my files. Well, I tried for a second time just yesterday and guess what. I get the "cannot mount backup" errors again!! What is going on!!! :( Does anyone have any idea why this keeps happening. What can I do other than re-install the WHS software. I can't believe this just keeps happening. Microsoft...HELP!

    I did post a bug report...it said that they already knew about it and thanks for posting. That wasn't very helpful...

    Any ideas anyone? :huh:

    Thanks,

    Dave
