Drive E:\ fails to back up in WHS RRS feed

  • Question

  • For the past six days, the data drive, E:\, in my computer has failed to back up.

    The error code reported is 0x80070079.  When I try to search on the error code I either get no result or one result that seems to have no bearing on WHS.

    I have a snippet of the dialog box but cannot post it to this forum.

  • Try running chkdsk /r on that drive.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • chkdsk /r was run on the drive.  The process took about an hour and a half, 500Gb drive, and there was no output to the monitor so I don't know the result(s).

    The drive still will not back up.  I have noted, however, that using Beyond Compare to sync subdirectories with external USB media takes much longer than it used to.  The process does not fail, it just takes longer to get files off the drive to copy the data.  The "timeout" I see in the error dialog on WHS may be caused by this extreme delay.  I can't say that it is any one file in particular that is causing the delay.

    I'm not sure what is going on here but an upgraded mainboard, Core i7 CPU, RAM, etc., are waiting in the other room to upgrade this computer in the next few days.  I shall keep the 500Gb drive but, after the files are copied to the new data drive, a format may be in order.

    The results of your chkdsk should be in the Event Logs (Application section).
