Error backup site content RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I am trying to backup a site collection in sharepoint 2016, via the shell or the web interface... and this is not working..
    I am received this log message:

    Error backing up site http://mysite/.... . System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception (0x80004005): The parameter is incorrect
    at Microsoft.SharePoint.CoordinatedStreamBuffer.SPCoordinatedStreamBufferOnFile.EnsureStream()  

    Anyone know how to resolve this ?

    Thank you very much

  • Hi,

    We use the following Powershell command to backup Site Collections. Never got any errors.

    Add-PSSnapin "Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell"

    Backup-SPSite -Identity "http://mysite.com" -Path "c:\backup\mysite.bak" -Force -NoSiteLock
