Server 2008 R2 Backup Recovery Blue-Screens when selecting "restore files or volumes" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows Backup and Recovery has been working for YEARS, then it started to Blue-Screen crash whenever I went in to recover a file from any of my 4 daily backups.  So I cloned the entire drive and installed/activated it on matching hardware and it does the same thing. Over the years I have frequently recovered "C:\ and Sys-State" from a few days earlier to back-out of a problem and have never had this problem until now.   I have been using a scheduled script to create the backups such as this.

    wbadmin start backup -backupTarget:\\?\Volume{a490d1c5-1037-11e8-99a5-0013723a6fad} -include:E:\Users -vssfull -quiet

    When recovering from these backups no long worked, I tried a backup with the built-in Wizard instead of the script above, but the blue-screen result was the same.

    I don't want to change to a 3rd party backup because Windows Backup has been perfect for my needs.

    I recently installed a licensed version of EaseUS Partition Master for Windows Server on my system.  That was the problem.  Even though it has no services or processes running, it has a fatal conflict with Windows Backup Recovery.   To confirm this, I installed and uninstalled it a couple of extra times and the problem was 100% linked to this program.

  • Thank you so much for posting this!!! I had the exact same problem and the cause was also due to EaseUS.
