    Hi all,

    I have connected a usb external drive as a backup to disk solution using Windows Backup feature on Windows Server 2008 R2 in a test environment to see if what the limitations are. After all my tests I've removed the test server and now I find that whenever I connect the usb drive it will not be read.
    I have tried deleting the volume, formatting the partition, nothing helps. After a lot of tests it got to a point where it would either show as RAW partition or simply as not initialized. I've worked with diskpart and with the GUI tools to try and make something of it but nothing worked.
    Most of the times I would get errors that the file specified does not exist and in event viewer I find the following errors:

    Event ID 140: The system failed to flush data to the transaction log. Corruption may occur in VolumeId: \\?\Volume{93c8cbc2-42fb-11e3-be75-5cac4cfd0b06}, DeviceName: \Device\HarddiskVolume5.

    (A device which does not exist was specified.)

    Oddly enough Volume 5 is on the internal Hard disk of the machine I'm using right now, not on the USB disk.

    Eent ID 153: The IO operation at logical block address 5f186f for Disk 1 was retried.

    After many different attempts I managed to get it to see the volume as it was named by the backup service again but I can't browse the files, nor can I reformat.
    Any ideas?

    I have gone through the other posts with this error and non of the solutions offered has worked for me.

    I have recently attached a network storage device ( a DROBO which is Linux based).  I am doing backups to this device of all of my servers.  I have a share set up that the servers can connect to on the DROBO.

    I have scheduled backups on my servers to run at different times when my business is closed.  The two domain controllers execute the backup with no problem.

    The problem is on the domain member servers.  The backup will run if I run it from the Server backup utility, with the parameter to back up once using the scheduled backup options.  However, it will not run as scheduled.  I have found the following error in the task scheduler - Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070569).  When I am at the backup snap-in, it does not show that the backup that was supposed to run the previous day was run, but does show that the scheduled backup has been incremented to the next day.

    I am running the backup under the domain administrators account and so there should be no problems with permissions.

    Windows Server 2008 Standard x86, full patched, after changing failed disk (one in RAID-1) doesn't correctly create system state backup.

    Backup started and after copy some data i.e. 1,49 GB stopped with message "device is not ready". In Application log is write message

    I have the similar Problem such as many other users with the backup programm but:

    - i have a Windows 7 System as Backup-Target (No NAS !!!!)

    - i cannot backup over VPN but when i do it local to the same Windows 7 machine, everything is OK

    The VPN runs perfectly. I can copy big files without Problems (bandwith is 10 MBit/s). I can do the Backup per Windows Server Backup or per wbadmin - the result is the same. I will make a Bare Metal Recovery Image.

    Where is the problem ? The only differences between local backup and VPN-backup is the smaller bandwith and the higher latency.

    We have several smaller to midsized customers that have invested money in tape drives and tapes. They are using Symantec BackupExec on Server 2003 / 2008 and 2008 R2. Unfortunately, Symantec postponed Server 2012 support in their products  many times already. This fact costs us many business opportunities to upgrade infrastructures to Server 2012.

    DPM 2012 is good for larger customers, but less suited for smaller companies (and the DPM "philosophy change" of the backup procedures, compared to older tape based backup solutions is an obstacle as well.)

    So we are looking for EASY backup solutions that support tape drives and server 2012. The "perfect" product for us would be just a tape driver and an extension to the integrated Windows Server Backup that would allow to store backups on tapes, the same way that Windows Backup allows backups to network shared folders.

    Does anyone knows EASY backup software that provides this functionality? I'm also very interested in feedback from peoples that have successfully used such products on Server 2012 and are satisfied with them.

    Thank you all in advance for any help.

    The system is a Dell R720 running Microsoft Server 2012 with Hyper-V.  The backup is configured to run every night at 2:30AM and backup the System state, 2 VMs and Host Component.  Every other night the backups complete with a warning.

    Time            Message          Description
    11/12/2013  2:30 AM       Backup        Successful
    11/11/2013  2:30 AM       Backup        Completed with warnings
    11/10/2013  2:30 AM       Backup        Successful
    11/9/2013    2:30 AM       Backup        Completed with warnings

    When I check the details for the Completed with warnings, the System State Backup did not complete.  When viewing the list of all backed up files it stops at the same point for the System State Backup.  The error message is:
           System state           The operation ended before completion.  Detailed  error: The process cannot access the file because
                                         it is being used by another process.

    The event log has the following Warning messages:

    Warning 11/11/2013  3:01:45 AM Backup 519 None

    Warning 11/9/2013  3:02:34 AM Backup 519 None

    Warning 11/7/2013  3:02:06 AM Backup 519 None

    Warning 11/5/2013  3:01:47 AM Backup 519 None

    The detail appears to be the same for all of them as follows:

    I have tried changing the backup time to a later time and deleted the backup schedule and re-entered it.

    I have been searching the forums but nothing seems to be related to my situation.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as the server is already in production.

    When I try to run a backup it gets stuck at files found. The image below shows my problem. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Windows server Backup, and I still have the same issue. This server is a virtual machine running in virtualbox. I had an enumeration failed error before and fixed this by running this Get Invalid Paths script that I found on a technet blog. I am now stuck with wbadmin not moving from "found <70487> files". Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi all,

    We have a couple Server 2012 running AD. We have a complete system state backup of a DC through Server Backup utility. We want to know if system state backup is enough to fully restore AD service in case of HW failure? What do we need to do after restoring the system state (technically, this is a completed system backup so not sure we need to do authoritative/unauthoritative restore)?

    Any inputs to this will be appreciated.

    Warm Regards,

    I was able to burn an ISO for Windows Server 2012, but every time I try to download it says either my pc has encountered a problem and need to shut down or it issues a compatibility report. I follow the directions for report and then my computer reboots.

    Could my computer not be able to handle it?

    Routine Back Up does not recognize disc in drive E.

    I have been unable to run a routine back up for months.  The back up comand requests a new disk named "    " and inserted.  After closing the bay with the new disk and checking OK, the system reports NO disc.  I have wasted hours trying to solve this problem.

    Please help!

    We have two new Windows Servers 2012 R2 that I'm trying to set backups on using a script. When I used the -allCritical switch, I get the error specified in the subject. When I look at the partition information using diskpart, I see a 2048 MB partition with no drive letter labeled as System that is FAT32. I was never prompted to my recollection of what file system to format the partition with. Is it safe to assign this partition a letter, convert to NTFS, and then remove the drive letter?

  • I am getting an error that says "Windows cannot install required files.  The file does not exist.  Make sure all files required for installation are available then restart the installation.  Error code: 0X80070002".  This occurs during a clean install of Windows 7 Pro on an SSD.  There are two hard drives in the machine but I currently have them disconnected.
