NTBackup 'An inconsistency was encountered...'
Posted on 2006-11-21
We're running SBS 2003 and NTBackup. We have 4 hard drives in the server that are split into a raid 1 array. These are partitioned into 7 partitions.
HDD 1&2 with partitions C: E: F: G: H: I: J:
HDD 3&4 (mirror of partitions C: E: F: G: H: I: J:)
We're trying to successfully backup all 7 partitions on HDDs 1&2 to an Iomega 35GB Rev Drive.
After checking through the Application event log it seems G: failed and according to the backup log file it was due to "Error: An inconsistency was encountered in the requested backup file."
The verification passed on C: E: F: failed on G:. Drives H: I: J: didn't get a mention in the log file so I assume the verification process just bombs out completely instead of going onto the next drive.
I've had a look through the Microsoft KB and found nothing specific to my problem.
Any ideas what might be causing the problem?
