Windows Server Backup completes with warnings RRS feed

  • Frage

  • Hi Guys,

    I have an SBS2011 server and I have a backup schedule running every night at 10pm, it is configured to backup The C drive, and the D drive (Where data is being held) a system state and Bare metal recovery.

    The backup completes with warning as the C drive doesn't back up completely, (usualy 80gb) of a 100Gb) but D drive backs up correcty. Error message generated is "file specified cannot be found"

    The SBS server is also hosting a VMware machine. Has anyone have any ideas how to resolve this? Is it an issue with VMware running?

  • Hi Aled,

    can you insert the Backup Logfile, and other question do have this Issu since the VM is running at the system or do you have a good backup before?

    What you can do is to check the VSS, sometimes the backup will not run fine, if the have a problem.

    + so you can restart the server if possilbe

    + or register the VSS Services new, if you cannot restart ther Server

    Net stop vss

    Net stop swprv


    regsvr32 ole32.dll

    regsvr32 oleaut32.dll

    regsvr32 vss_ps.dll


    vssvc /register


    regsvr32 /i swprv.dll

    regsvr32 /i eventcls.dll

    regsvr32 es.dll

    regsvr32 stdprov.dll

    regsvr32 vssui.dll

    regsvr32 msxml.dll

    regsvr32 msxml3.dll

    regsvr32 msxml4.dll

    But before you register the VSS new, please check if you have all this *.dll - because I not really sure if this is possible at an SBS11 (I have made it on an W2K3 Server and it worked for me)

  • I have done what you suggested and I have restarted the server, it seems to complete with warnings occasionally now.

  • Hello Aled,

    we recently had another (german) thread concerning this issue. The solution in that case was to shrink the partition.
