  • Hi,

    Does it happen only on this server ? Did you made some test on another ?

    Edit: could you try with volume GUID-based path ?

    Open a command prompt and type :

    C:\Windows\system32>mountvol
    Creates, deletes, or lists a volume mount point.

    MOUNTVOL [drive:]path VolumeName
    MOUNTVOL [drive:]path /D
    MOUNTVOL [drive:]path /L
    MOUNTVOL [drive:]path /P
    MOUNTVOL /R
    MOUNTVOL /N
    MOUNTVOL /E

        path        Specifies the existing NTFS directory where the mount
                    point will reside.
        VolumeName  Specifies the volume name that is the target of the mount
                    point.
        /D          Removes the volume mount point from the specified directory.
        /L          Lists the mounted volume name for the specified directory.
        /P          Removes the volume mount point from the specified directory,
                    dismounts the volume, and makes the volume not mountable.
                    You can make the volume mountable again by creating a volume
                    mount point.
        /R          Removes volume mount point directories and registry settings
                    for volumes that are no longer in the system.
        /N          Disables automatic mounting of new volumes.
        /E          Re-enables automatic mounting of new volumes.

    Possible values for VolumeName along with current mount points are:

        \\?\Volume{3724d757-cf8e-11e1-a3ab-806e6f6e6963}\
            *** NO MOUNT POINTS ***

        \\?\Volume{4ef1a235-2429-11e2-9544-00155d013b08}\
            D:\

        \\?\Volume{4ef1a285-2429-11e2-9544-00155d013b08}\
            F:\

        \\?\Volume{3724d758-cf8e-11e1-a3ab-806e6f6e6963}\
            C:\

        \\?\Volume{3724d75c-cf8e-11e1-a3ab-806e6f6e6963}\
            A:\

        \\?\Volume{3724d75b-cf8e-11e1-a3ab-806e6f6e6963}\
            U:\

    C:\Windows\system32>wbadmin.exe start backup -allcritical -include:\\?\Volume{4ef1a235-2429-11e2-9544-00155d013b08}\ -quiet -backuptarget:%1

    Retrieving volume information...
    This will back up volume System Reserved (100.00 MB),Local Disk(D:),Local Disk(C:) to %1.

  • Hi Akther,

    If this happen on all your servers, this issue is more related to WBS, so you should try to post your issue in Windows Backup service forum: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/windowsbackup/threads

    Hope this help you.
