We have a windows 2003 SP2 Standard 32bit edition citrix server (we know product support is stopped!) having VSS error. Backups are failing. When I right click C: drive and chose "shadow copies" tab, it throws below error message. I am unable to copy paste the event log details :(
Looked for the solutions in internet but could not get proper one. Please help me fixing it.

but running through the process its not giving me the opportunity to backup the file share,instead choosing the file share as the destination to place the backup.
How do i backup the file share documents using the windows back up tool to backup my documents.
I am on win 8.1 pro & am working with iso which also keep staying 'open' so I cannot rename them. How do you close an *.vhd file
I am looking to replicate the my Server 2012 DHCP, so if the primary machine fails, we can continue with to other DHCP.
Looking for a guide.
I am aware of the 64TB usability limit for the Volume Shadow Copy Service using NTFS on Windows Server up to 2012R2. My question is:
Has this limit changed at all using Windows Server 2016 volumes formatted with either NTFS or REFS?
I am not able to see system writer after running VSSadmin list writers
What I have done so far:
Run thisTakeown /f %windir%\winsxs\temp\PendingRenames /a
icacls %windir%\winsxs\temp\PendingRenames /grant "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:(RX)"
icacls %windir%\winsxs\temp\PendingRenames /grant "NT Service\trustedinstaller:(F)"
icacls %windir%\winsxs\temp\PendingRenames /grant BUILTIN\Users:(RX)
Takeown /f %windir%\winsxs\filemaps\* /a
icacls %windir%\winsxs\filemaps\*.* /grant "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:(RX)"
icacls %windir%\winsxs\filemaps\*.* /grant "NT Service\trustedinstaller:(F)"
icacls %windir%\winsxs\filemaps\*.* /grant BUILTIN\Users:(RX)
net stop cryptsvc
net start cryptsvc
This is not able to fix the issue
Can somebody suggest solution for this which may not require system reboot
As the title says, 2 days ago my Windows Server Backup erased ALL of my previous backups when the disk was full. I was under the impression it was supposed to only delete the oldest backups first to make room for more copies. I have attempted to recover backups from before 2 days ago, but there is nothing available for dates older than 30 November 2016.
On the 7th September 2016 I had the following backups: 221 copies available Oldest available: 25 February 2016.Capacity: 931.49 GB Total used space: 928.71 Space used by backup items: 300.04 Gb, Space used by backup copies: 628.67 Gb
Today I have the following: 2 copies available Oldest available: 30 November 2016. Capacity: 931.49 GB Total used space: 309.65 Space used by backup items: 303.44 Gb, Space used by backup copies: 6.22 GB
Can someone please explain why this would occur, and if there's any options that I can select/un-select so that in future, when my backup disk is full, Windows Server Backup doesn't automatically erase ALL of my backups again?
Also, is there any way I can get these backups back?
Hi, I'm receiving the Event 65535, VSS Keep-alive error in the Windows Server 2008 Application Log. The description of this event is as follow:
"Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer", see screenshot below:
I'm trying to run the VSS-aware backup of system state.
Anyone available to assist or point me into the right direction?
Hi I wonder if someone could answer a question regarding BMB/BMR on servers. I have a broken server which is used as the RD Licence Manager with some 25 licences on it. Its broken following a ransomware attack and will not allow any programs
to be installed on it. I have just taken a windows BMB of its current broken state and have connected another server to the same network and set the new server up as the session host and it is looking at the old server for the RD licences and thats working
fine. The reason is the cost of the RD licences which we no longer have the licence details of. My question is if the old server falls over and I restore the BMB done will it restore the 25 RD licences that are on it and allow us to continue using it
as the RD Licence Manager. Many thanks in advance.
Given internal disks:
The 1TB backup disk contains full system backups. Individual files restore works fine. I would like to test a full system recovery onto the cold spare 250 GB disk without taking the current system disk out. When booted from the installation media, though, the system recovery does not list the 250 GB disk as a possible target. Well, it does not give any choice interface for recovery target. How do I make sure that the recovery plan is good? Any option without disconnecting the 120 GB disk?
I am doing scheduled backups every night of my Server 2008 R2 SP1. The backups say successful however it always fails on the last drive. So it is successfully backing up the C and D drives as well as the System Reserved, System State, and Bare metal. However when it attempts to back up my E. drive I get the error "The system cannot find the path specified"
I have a Seagate 4TB 4 bay storage server with Windows 2012 Storage Server. Things are working reasonably well, there are some network shares and I am using Windows Backup. Occasionaly, once every two months or so, it appears a backup takes longer than usual i.e 7-10 hours. And it sometimes spills over into the next workday. You can imagine what happens next, anger, calls, "why did we listen to him", etc.
Is there way to set a time limit on the backup?
Perhaps, I can use task scheduler to check if the backup is running at a certain time and shut it down.
Any other ideas? If you need more info, please ask.
Thanks very much.
This started a month ago when I noticed my backups started failing. Turns out the System and Hyper-V vss writers were missing. Had to reboot to bring them back. One month later, same issue.
I can also state there are a number of services that Terminate unexpectedly before these events happen. Afterwards I can't run backups
because of the missing writers.
We have Windows 2003 Server Failover cluster server. One of the storage disk have some SAN patch issue - among 2, one SAN path is not working. Storage is HP EVA. Problem is that one of storage disk have around 1 TB space & one of file of the disk around 550 GB. Disk is almost 90% utilized. Usually backup with DP 6.2 through SAN multipath took 3 Hr. (before SAN patch issue). Now a days backup taking time between 8 to 12 hrs., it varies, but my total backup size is not varied - it remain between 850 GB to 900 GB. Also checked that specifically the large 550 GB file taking too much time for backup. I am suspecting the large file have some issue. How to check this file as well as the storage disk also. I am agree that for SAN path issue backup time is taking much time, considering this I need to check the file consistency & the respective disk. How to do this ? Reply please.
We are trying to do a bare metal recovery of a Windows 2012 R2 Server from the Windows Server backups to a new disk drive and we get this error: The volume ID could not be found. We are booting to the system recovery from a Windows server 2012
bootable image on a USB thumb drive. We did go into DiskPart and do a clean all on the drive were trying to restore to so that it didn't have a partition image or anything else on it. That didn't help. Windows 2012 Server backups should be
able to restore to different disk drive because hard drive failure is one of the reasons you might have to do a bare metal recovery.
I'm trying to restore some files from server backup on different PC.
Is this possible?
Backup was done on Windows server 2016.
I'm trying to restore some files on different PC, with Windows 10 Ent 2018.
I typed this command:
D:\>wbadmin start recovery -version:06/11/2018-20:00 -itemtype:File -items:'e:\stuff' -backuptarget:f: -recoverytarget:D:
Here is what I'm getting:
wbadmin 1.0 - Backup command-line tool
(C) Copyright 2013 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
Warning: The START RECOVERY command is not supported in this version of Windows.
The operation ended before completion.
Does it mean that recovery of single files or parts of backup can be done only on servers?
I want to delete my backup on March of Empires so I can start a new game.
I used to use this program before. (Windows Server 2012 R2, build with Visual Studio 2013, Microsoft SQL Server 2014)
The source code of the program has not changed. However, there is a change in the programs used. (Windows Server 2012 R2, build with Visual Studio 2015, Microsoft SQL Server 2016)
We are currently in service, but the application is terminating abnormally.
What causes this issue?

A quick rundown - we need to create a remote traversal domain, but there are *POLITICS* between our host and the host of the remote domain, so we're not allowed to create a domain member onsite. We need to ship backups of the servers offsite.
Is there a way to replicate out only the changes made by Windows Server Backup? I know that it creates a single VHD per volume, but I'm wondering if there's a way to mount the volumes and copy out only the changes, rather than the full backup.
