Windows SBS 2008
Windows Server Backup
I have a server whose backup has been failing, purportedly for a lack of space on the drive.
The drive is full (after about 6 mos. of usage), but in http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc770266%28v=ws.10%29.aspx
it is stated that "Automatic disk usage management. After you configure a disk for a scheduled backup, Windows Server Backup automatically manages the disk usage—you do not need to be concerned about running out of disk space after repeated backups. Windows Server Backup will automatically reuse the space of older backups when creating new backups. The management tool displays the backups that are available and the disk usage information. This can help you plan for provisioning additional storage to meet your recovery objectives."
The actual error message is:
"Log Name: Application
"Date: 1/23/2011 3:12:05 AM
"Event ID: 519
"Task Category: None
Backup started at '1/23/2011 8:00:01 AM' failed to backup volume(s) 'D:' with following error code 2155348010 (One of the backup files could not be created.). Please rerun backup once issue is resolved."
I would prefer not to wipe the drive and start over, but if I have to, I will. But I would like to try to determine why it is not working as advertised. The backup is approximately 516GB.
