Backup task - Farm backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to backup a sharepoint foundation farm with one web application (with one site collection). Not much out there.

    I did a backup from central admin to local c:/backups/ .

    Everything went smooth till I figured there were a few errors on completion.

    It is copying everything else except the databases!

    Please advise.

  • Hello,

    If your backup is not backing up the databases that means you aren't actually backing up your site contents. This could be because you are using a local drive (c:\backup) - use a UNC path (\\servername\...) instead. Make sure your SharePoint timer service account and SQL service account has access to this network share. Check the following technet article for details.


    Hope this helps!
