Pre-note: This problem is troubling. I have old machine backups that I need to maintain my business as well the family PCs. It concerns me greatly that this critical backup system has been brought down without intervention by me (that I know of). If this is caused by bad updates why isn't MS fixing it? As a customer all I want is a solid platform and reliable tools that are properly maintained. This has wasted many many hours trying to track down. Now that the product has been dumped (another incompatible product has been released) I am extremely nervous about investment my time and money in Microsoft software.
Image #1: Mount backups fail
Nothing of interest in the event log.
Image #2: Restore Fails
Resulting Event log:
Image #5: Uninstalling Connect SW from Dev PC. I reinstall but the final screen of install it failure and the install rollsback. But before I click cancel (and rollback) I can run the connect sw no problems). So now connect wont install on this PC at all. Rebooting server or machines does not help.
So to force Connect software to stay I killed off the installed before it rolled back.
Now I can run the Client software but it can't connect to the backup server to fetch the data.
Installed WHS 1.0 mid 2007. It has been reliable since then even
with the release of PowerPacks 1, 2 & 3.
The problem is reported every where. Some people can fix it ok.
