An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk2\DR** during a paging operation RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,

    We have had an issue come up on one of our servers, this server only has x2 HDD, Drive 0 & Drive 1. It seems that whenever Windows Backup runs at night to a NAS using the UNC path we get the mentioned error. This is running on Windows Server 2012 R2 x64 6.3.9600 Build 9600. There is no Harddisk2 or USB devices connected, this has been confirmed in device manager, disk management and diskpart listing on powershell.

    The backup job does complete as normal.

    We have taken the following steps so far to no avail.

    1. Recreated the backup job

    2. Rebooted Server

    3. Increased page file on the server drives and on the NAS

    4. CHKDSK on all drives (no errors found)

    The only major change that this server has had was the backup location was changed from an internal drive off to the NAS remote drive. We recreated the job thinking that Windows Server backup was assuming that the NAS was still the internal drive. 

    Has anyone had this before or can provide some other steps to re-mediate the issue?
