Hi:

I did an NT backup of a 2003 server and got this error message:

Warning: Unable to open "c:\windows\SYSVOL\domain\DO_NOT_REMOVE_NtFrs_PreInstall_Directory" - skipped.

Is this anything to be concerned about?  Would it affect a restore in the event of a disaster recovery requiring new hard drives?

Thanks

Hi taborrg,

Are you trying to backup the entire C:\ ?

If so, that is going to be pointless in a disaster recovery anyway - backup your crucial data, and the "system state" and you should have enough for a rebuild

Hope that helps,

I got that during a system state only backup.  Here's the full report:

Backup Status
Operation: Backup
Active backup destination: File
Media name: "System-tkmain1Backup.bkf created 10/22/2006 at 2:46 AM"

Backup (via shadow copy) of "System State"
Backup set #1 on media #1
Backup description: "Set created 10/22/2006 at 2:46 AM"
Media name: "System-tkmain1Backup.bkf created 10/22/2006 at 2:46 AM"

Backup Type: Copy

Backup started on 10/22/2006 at 2:47 AM.
Warning: Unable to open "c:\windows\SYSVOL\domain\DO_NOT_REMOVE_NtFrs_PreInstall_Directory" - skipped.
Reason: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

Backup completed on 10/22/2006 at 2:49 AM.

This is a known problem apparently;

There is a hotfix, and the fantastic work around of "just ignore it" :)
