Cant get W10 PC backup to work in dashboard
I have 3 PC's (2 W10 Pro and 1 W7) and a server running WHS 2011.
All was well until I updated this PC to new W10 Pro install using an ASUS Z07-Pro Gamer MB, all other components are the same.
I had little trouble to install connector and dashboard started up and allowed this PC to be added as a new user and it shows me as active under user.
However, when I go to "computers and backup" this PC does not show up in the list of PC's that can be selected.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the connector several times, made sure I have no W10 updates pending, restarted the server all to no avail.
If I try to run backup from Launchpad I get the message "backup is not setup for this computer".
This has to be a simple error but its got me stumped - help please.
Restoring back up fails.
Hi there guys, I am having a problem restoring a backup from Windows Home Server 2011 to a Windows 10 X64 Pro Client, the dashboard upon trying to restore the client says an unknown network error has occured, but this is misleading the Server is still on the network in fact shared folders are still available.
What i have noticed is that when this occurs if i check in the dashboard all my backups are saying Backup Status unknown. To add to the mix I am running drive bender so the drives are all basically pooled as d:\.
Drive bender is heavilly accessing the pool and validating files, I have sent a ticket off to the makers of Drive Bender but I am awaiting their response.
I have just tried to restore the System Reserved 350MB partition which worked just fine, it just seems to get bogged down when I am trying to restore my 128GB SSD.
Any ideas guys?
Resume disabled backup
In order to complete an application update on our server, I needed to pause / postpone the scheduled backup, but I couldn't find a way to do this without disabling the server backup (I know I could have waited for the backup to start and then pause it, but that is not very convenient) . I expected that I could enable backup again with the same settings as before, but when I try enabling backup, it seems like I have to start from scratch. Is there really no way to restore previous backup settings??
Backing up Windows 10 Pro
Yes, I am still running an HP MediaSmart Home Server v1. I recently upgraded my laptop to Windows 10 Home and my PC to Windows 10 Pro. The laptop (win10 Home) backs up just fine. The desktop (win10Pro) will not. I can get to the file shares and see old backups, but cannot start a new backup nor can I configure backups on that machine. Sometimes I get a pop-up on the desktop saying the backup is starting and then a few seconds later, another pop-up saying the backup failed because the PC rebooted in the middle.
Both machines were in-place updgrades through MS.
Windows 10 Restore from WHS V 1 backup
I need some guidance.
I have an HP Mediasmart Server running WHS V1. In addition I have two computers which I have recently upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7. Although I tested and verified that the connecter worked on the windows 10 systems I never did so for restoring files from a backup. I now have need of accessing some files backed up under windows 7. When I try to restore (manage) a backup the server appears to be restoring the files but when it gets to the point where file (windows) explorer should open and show me the backup, a window quickly opens showing what I think are the backup files and then immediately closes ....
