Getting Crazy no backup for a long period. all VSS errors and no good solutions RRS feed

  • Question

  • SBS 2011 every day VSS errors. No backup for some time now. It starting to get under my skin. Asking and searching for solutions are all foggy to me. I'm not an IT guy! I just need this to run. I have no money to hire an IT tech, so I'm stuck. Just see errors below.

  • Same problem. Tried a lot. It seems all related to SPSearch4 VSS Writer. How can I get rid of it? 

    I used to had a SPfarm and web.. account for Sharepoint. It all started after running Share Point 2010 Prodcut configuration. The server seems messed up and with no backup, tot go back anymore. I have deleted snapshots in order to get rid of the problem. As was mentioned somewhere.

    "The server seems messed up and with no backup, tot go back anymore. "
    On January 14, 2020, support for Windows Server SBS 2011 will end. That means the end of regular security updates,is it possible migrate to w2016 standard or wse 2016

  • Yes, I did a lot, so pelase don't ask how but I managed to get it working. Decided to use a nas next year synology.  It comes with tools out of the box. File server - web server - dchp server - dns and mail server. Why would I even buy new hardware and pay for Microsoft server software. What seems to give me headache. I just want to work and not have to be a IT pro to keep it working. Small business meaning not a lot of income to keep an IT staf managing my server, nor do I have time to sort all kind of problems that comes after every update os complete sudenly like these problems! 

    Thanks for you help by the way and have a good one!
