The Task "additional Client Computer Backup Tasks"

3 posts in this topic

So i looked around this forum as well as googled this problem many time and haven't found anything for this problem yet.

When i select a client computer then click Additional client computer backup tasks I get an error popup that states *The task "Additional client computer backup tasks" did not complete successfully.

I have no idea why this is popping up and has for a few months now. I have checked to see if the client back up services are running on the server and the client and as far as I know everything is started. So my obvious question is, has anyone else seen this and if they have maybe a solution to it?

On a side note if i simply missed a thread already started can someone point me in its direction?

I'm having this same issue, and if you try to restore it will fail. Dane I hope you're backing up locally on a separate HD just incase you need to restore a file or folder. I'm still looking for a reslotion to to this as well.

Server backups are still working and they are going to a dedicated external drive, how ever there is nothing on this server that i am worried about loosing, all the storage drives are duplicated and are recoverable if i have to do a fresh install...just dont want to if i dont have to :) Good advice either way though.

    • So I currently have Windows Server 2012 Essentials (running in a Hyper-V VM) and am thinking about migrating to a Windows 10 server. I have 12 disks or so on the server all configured via Storage spaces. Can I simply connect these disks up to a Windows 10 install and have all the files appear? From what I have read the storage space info is all on the disks and it should work, but has anyone here actually tried it and succeeded. I have 10+ TB of data and the easiest way to get it to the new server would be to just connect the disks up.   Thanks, -Bill
    • Did you try CC cleaner or a disk clean up program? It seems to me that old files merged or not are still existing, do you have external storage that you could export the known good files to while you reformat and clean the 6TB?
    • Hello Is it possible to clone an external HDD containing the server backup to another external HDD? The external HDD doesn't have a drive letter, so how can I clone the drive?  I have two external drives in a Dual Dockingstation (2 drives), which has a button to clone from A to B, but I don't trust that solution too much..
    • I have a whs 2011 server, which has been running fine for years, however since I have updated the client pc's to windows 10 anniversary edition I am constantly getting a services not running error on clients, having checked the services, all are in the correct state, I have tried restarting some of the obvious ones, but with no success. if I select the fix option in the alert list for the error, it clears, but then returns after 20 mins or so. Not sure what to do next to solve this.
    • well it took a great deal of time but the repair made it possible for the cleanup to go pass the 14% strange however is that even though I told it to delete all the bad backups and merge the good ones it did not clear up any of the disk space. And adding all the good merge backup sizes together shows there should be the normal 6Tb free available. So the failed backups are gone the good backups are all merged but the disk space remains at 212 Mb. not sure how to tackle this I am going to look at it again this next weekend to see if I missed something.
