Format Drive Z And 81%

3 posts in this topic

I have a win7 64 bit cient with a C: drive and external USB Drive - both have been backing up flawlessly for a year- today I needed to restore a file from the external drive and I got a message at 81% saying that the drive Z needed formating and the drive could not be mounted.

This is the same on three other machines - I also tried restoring a file from drive C and I get the same error... Help!!

Thanks!!

There are basically four suggested solutions:

  1. Make sure you have PP3 installed and that you Re-Installed the Connector software on the Win7 machine after PP3 on WHS
  2. Uninstall and Reinstall the connector software (the Console on the Win7)
  3. The DISKPART fix found here: http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/whssoftware/thread/668d17ca-4171-4175-8183-be6e9e7d3f86
  4. Reinstalling the Home Server Restore Driver fix found here: http://forum.wegotserved.com/index.php/topic/15405-cannot-mount-the-backup/page__p__90763__hl__%2Bhome+%2Bserver+%2Brestore+%2Bdriver__fromsearch__1#entry90763

Hopefully, one of these will work for the OP.

In my case, it turned out that the backup itself had been silently corrupted angry.gif

If the OP has another client on the network, he could try viewing the misbehaving backup from there to eliminate this possibility quickly.
