Unable to Remove Archived Computer Backups RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have got a pair of computers that I've removed from Windows Home Server 2011 and chosen to archive the computer backups. 

    Now, Windows Home Server does not let me remove the archived backups.  Whenever I try to do so, I receive the following message:

    "Failed to remove COMPUTER:  Cannot complete the task because the server is busy. Please try again later."

    At the time this occurs, no client computer backup task appears to be running. No error messages are posted to the Windows Server event logs. I've tried doing this after a fresh reboot, still no luck. I've tried the repair client computer backup database wizard. This did not help.

    Any ideas what could be causing this and what I can do about it?  Thanks in advance.

  • Well... nevermind.  The situation resolved itself somehow.  I guess I really did just have to "try again later." :-)
