Windows Backup - the filename directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect? When editing a job RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I'm remotely trying to configure a Windows Server Backup job.

    We added new drives to the server but we need to ensure that the drive will be getting backed up. So I've tried to edit the current Windows Backup Job and received the following error message:

    windows backup the filename directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect?

    I've tried to research this error but alot of post refer to adding additional backup drives not resolving editing current backup jobs Ive also tried removing old drives but end up with the same error message. 

    Thanks in advance
