    Hello, I have a WD Sentinel DX4000 12TB unit and it’s recently been locking up.

    After talking to WD Help they recommended I ‘Perform a Recovery’.

    However every time I get to the last stage I get the error message ‘Error Code: 0x8007000d’

    -------------------------------------

    Recover your server

    Could not reset the server to factory default settings

    Your server was not reset to the factory default settings. Resolve the issue, and then restart the server recovery process.

    Error Code: 0x8007000d

    ------------------------------------

    On the drive its says 'Recovery Started' but no progress number.

    This drive has 9 years of my life on it and I am just a bit panicked.


    Any help much appreciated,

    Thor

    Hi,

    all info that I find on Technet seems to say that WSE should manage the space of the server backup hard drives automatically (ie. delete older backups to create newer ones). However, all threads on this topic usually involve users who only have 1 backup drive.

    In my case, we use 2 server backup hard drives in onsite/offsite rotation. Both drives are identical 2Tb hard drives. Drive 1 was nearing full capacity, so we swapped it out with Drive 2. A few days later, we plugged Drive 1 back in, expecting it to self-clean. Instead, it reached 100% capacity, and backups have been failing for 3 days now.

    So Drive 1 is 100% full (2Tb), and contains 91 backups.

    Drive 2's is lower, but I suspect that's simply because we didn't leave it plugged in to the server as long as Drive 1 (so it has fewer backups).

    How can this situation be fixed?

    I have two Windows Server 2008 R2 systems which I am backing up with the native WSB utility.  Both are VMs under ESXi 5.5 on the same physical Dell R710 host.  Each has its own 2 TB USB connected device which was dedicated to and formated by and for WSB.  Both complete their respective backups without error and have been up for months.

    On system A, WSB reports there are 243 copies available and examining the drive shows there is 288 GB free of the 1.81 TB total.

    On system B, WSB reports there are 11 copies available and examining the drive shows there is 1.33 TB free of the 1.81 TB total.

    My question is, why doesn't system B leverage a similar amount of the drive?

    Thank you for any ideas!

    Hi team,

    I am having issues with backing up my exchange 2013 data from one of my exhange server to the storage system. Windows server back up was previously backing up data but just discover the issue just last week where backup were no long successful but was just failing continuously up till now.

    Note that i have four(4) exchange server (server name); DC-MBX-SV- 1,DC-MBX-SV- 2,DC-MBX-SV- 3 & DC-MBX-SV- 4.

    From the above mail servers, three(3) are working perfectly meaning backup turn out successful on the 3 of them base on their daily schedulale. However, for only one (DC-MBX-SV- 1), has that issue with backing up and thus, could not back up data. Every morning i use to check it always gives me the fail notification alarm

    Please can someone intevene and assist.

    Thanks

    I have a Windows 2012 R2 Essentials server with a 1 TB mirrored drive.  I also have four 1 TB backup drives that I rotate, with one off-site.

    EDIT: I am using Windows Server Backup

    However, my backup drives are almost full and I need to use larger drives.  So I bought three 3 TB drives.

    My question is: if I do backup setup again with just the three 3TB drives, do I lose access to all the older data that was on the 1TB drives?  To guarantee backup integrity, should I instead do setup will all seven drives attached?

    Thanks in advance for any answers.

  • 03/12/15--09:44: Recover files
  • Hello,

    One of my clients had a Windows 2008 R2 Server and i configured it to backup the files on an external USB hard disk.

    The hard disk has failed and the client wants to recover specific files from that USB hard disk before we make a full system recovery.

    I connected the disk on another PC that runs Windows XP. The systems "sees" the USB hard disk, but when i double click on it it says that i dont have permissions to Access the files. Also, when i right click on it and i select PROPERTIES it says that the disk consists of 0 bytes.

    Does anyone know how to extract the files from the USB hard disk without connecting it on a computer that runs Windows 2008 r2 Server.

    Thank you in advance!

  • 03/12/15--10:15: How to backup registry key
  • I’m trying to back up my registry key using the command prompt. I have read through the parameters and have looked at the examples (at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc742083.aspx), but can’t seem to get it right. Can anyone let me know what I’m doing wrong? Here’s what I have so far.

    Wbadmin Start Backup –backupTarget:f: -include:c:\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsHKEY

    I know this is wrong, and certainly the command prompt tells me that it’s wrong. What would I type to properly back up the registry key? It is located at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsHKEY

    Thanks for the help.

    HI,  I want to try to do a windows restore from a valid backup folder.

    My 2008 R2 Server's C:\ (boot) drive failed I've replaced it and I have installed a new server OS on a new drive that I want to over write .......

    That new system can see the second hard drive - it now sees that drive as E:\ - Yep, I have C:\ the new drive - D:\ sys reserved - and E:\ my old backup drive - and I can see the backup folder(s) on the second hard drive when I browse with windows explorer ..... (normal)

    When I boot off the 2008 CD I get:

    - it loads the CD's file  (normal)

    - pick language and keyboard   (normal)

    - I choose repair your computer instead of install now   (normal)

    -  I then see the system recovery options and it says I can restore the "Windows Server 2208 R2" and it shows me the partition size and the fact that its on the E:\ ?!  OK!  As above during a normal boot - that's right. 

    - The other radio button says I can "Restore your computer using a system image that you created earlier"  (so first - which one do I use?)

    - If I pick the default top selection and highlight the "Win Svr 2008 R2" in blue and click next I then see the "Choose recovery tool" window so I pick "System Image Recovery"

    - Now it screws up and says it can't find a system image on this computer - WTF!?!

    If I hit retry it briefly shows "scanning for system image disks" and then pops back to that same error screen.

    If I hit cancel then I get a new window that says: Re-Image your computer" and in that it says: Select a system image backup and the radio button is already selected and it says: Select a system image - so next!

    So I'm in the Location - Most recent system image - Computer - they're all blank!  How do I get this this little sod to see the E:\ drive and my 3 valid back up folders!?  The refresh button does nothing to help.  I have a feeling that the boot CD has shifted all my drive letters or something - keep reading ......

    THATS the main problem!

    If I hit the advanced button on the bottom:

    It says: Search for a system image on the network ..... or install a driver.  Oddly enough if I pick install a driver I then browse to the local PC all the drive letters have SHIFTED but I can see everything!

    C:\ - sys reserve

    D:\ - sys reserve

    E:\ - the new installed C:\ root

    F:\ - now my backup drive - I can see the folders there

    X: - Boot

    Why can't windows backup see my spare hard drive in it with my backups on it?  As either the native E:\ or if I explorer the drive F:| either way - the drive is there!

    Cheers'

    Dave

    The ideal goal would be to have a one backup job "A" backup weekly to the drive "weekly" and a backup job "b" backup monthly to the drive "monthly." However windows server backup does not give me an option to create a second backup job. How would I go about getting this done?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Error Message

    There was a failure while compacting the virtual hard disk.  The system cannot access the file because it it being used by another process.

    Server 2012R2 on Dell R420 with RAID 5.  Server is running two Hyper-V VM's.

    The message occurs on all partitions.  Including ones without disk letters.

    Backup is happening on disk dedicated for backup and has occurred since the first backup.  The first couple of backups the error occurred on only one partition.  Now, it's all of them.

    There is no anti-virus running yet.

    Does "Normal Backup Performance" actually write ALL blocks, even unchanged blocks?  If so, why?

    Per this link: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd759145.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396, If "Normal Backup Performance" is selected, then "ALL of the contents are transferred... but space used is only associated with changed blocks"

    This leads me to believe that ALL blocks are written; not only are changed blocks replaced in the backup, but also unchanged blocks are overwritten with the exact same blocks from the source.    Is this correct?  

    If the above is correct, why overwrite the unchanged blocks?  If this were a traditional full + incremental scenario I could understand wanting a single new full backups for quickly restoring rather than the time consuming process of restoring a full backup followed by a bunch of incrementals.  But since WSB always has a full backup as the latest backup and never needs to restore a bunch of incrementals, I see no advantage of ever using the Normal Backup Performance option.   Am I misunderstanding?  If not, what is a reason to select the Normal Backup Performance option?

  • 03/15/15--05:22: Backing Up Hyper-V hosts
  • hi

    I did a loots of research before I post this article but none of them are so clear to me

    I have the following in my environment:

    all servers are running W2K12R2

    I will use [wbAdmin start backup -backupTarget:\\MyShare-include:C:,E:,F:,G: -allCritical -quiet] as a batch file to backup entire Hyper-V node to a remote share every night

    I have decided to test the backups for that I have prepared an additional server I did install W2k12R2 on it and enabled hyper-v role and windows server backup feature and start restoring both Hyper-V01 and Hyper-V02 to it using restore individual VMs successfully then I reconfigured Virtual switches and networks but none of the DC's are replicating ! in both domains !

    any idea or help on this ?

    or somebody tell me Am I doing the backup and restoration wright ?

    if not what is the best practice for backing up and restoring all my virtual machines ?
