NTBackup GUI does not open

I have a machine running windows 2003 SP2.  When I try to open NT Backup, the process starts but the GUI does not.  I have tried this on several administrative accounts and performed a reboot of the server.

Event ID 84 Source: Removable Storage Server
RSM database is not compatible with the Removable Storage Service binary.  

From that I am guessing the RSM database is corrupt.  Looking for how to restore it, but any other suggestions would help.

Figured it out, had to delete the files located in windows\system32\ntmsdata then start the removable storage service.  It created more files then was deleted and NT Backup now opens.

i came here because there was an automated request for attention

my 2 cents:  matt asked you to look in the event logs, you did, found an error, and fixed it yourself

hi kinda pushed you down the hill, should get something.. i'm sure he was more than willing and able to help you further if you didnt fix it yourself, after you got the event logs
