Sloved! Backup Errors DrivePool 22.214.171.124 BETA
Hi there just would like a little guideness in the correct way the backups should work using drive pool and the inbuilt windows backup feature of windows server 2012 essentials:
I currently have my OS on the C drive and my server folders on pool drive F which is make up of 2 x WD 3TB Reds set to dupclicate (D & E). Let me first say that when i only back up the C drive i get no errors what so ever and everthing is fine.
From my understanding DP can not back up the drive pool, F in my case so i need to back up the actual folders from the drives themself? (i do not want to back up the whole drive) So i tried just adding the user folder (just to test) from drive D to the already working C drive backup and it just sticks at X%, then tried adding the user folder from drive E and it fails so then both user folders (D & E) and it fails juststopping at X%. Am i doing something incorrectly here? what is the correct procedure for backing up any of the server folders from a dublicated hard drive pool in my case?
On a side note i have noticed that any of the files that are in the pool can be searched for? e.g when i search for a music files in my music folder on the hard drive it shows as thoe nothing is there even thoe i can clearly see the file in from of my eyes in the open window.But if that same folder was on the C drive it would see it.
Thanks for any help you can give. Pete.
OK didnt know i needed to add the pool to the list of indexed folders ill give it a go thanks.
I have still to mess around to get the server folders backed up via the built in back up. Currently its set to only back up my OS drive and that is working fine and im test using Crash Plan (cloud only for the mo) and it seems to be backing up the pool drive folders ok..........Will update once i try again.
Still getting no where fast. All disks check out to be fine. The problem only shows up when I try adding any file/folder from either of the drives that make up the pool or I have even tried using the same file from the actual pool still no luck. It's stumped me????
So just to confirm I have windows server 2012 essentials backup working with drivepool and the OS drive.
One strange think I did note was when I was testing the backup with the os drive and another drive not in the pool that shadow copies had been enabled o this drive but when I tired to disable volume shadow copies after some testing it would just hang, the only way I could disable it was by deleting each saved shadow copy then once it got to none I could disable it.
Just like to say thanks for your input guys
