Hey all, having an issue with moving Sharepoint Services data. Tried to move it initially and the server crapped out. Wasnt too worried as the site was just created with no content. Removed Sharepoint and reinstalled. Site is up and running fine now. Issue is when trying to move the Sharepoint data again, it errors out. "Windows SBS 2008 Move Data Wizard has stopped working"  Movedata errorHave attached image of movedata.failure wizard as well as the movedata log file. MoveData.log
I have complete access to the site and there are no other issues I am aware of.
Any ideas?
Thanks

From the log: Message: The Web application at http://companyweb/ could not be found. Verify that you have typed the URL correctly. If the URL should be serving existing content, the system administrator may need to add a new request URL mapping to the intended application.


Can you get to "http://companyweb/" using a browser without any errors?

Thanks for the response.
Thats what I saw in the log file as well but I am not sure why it is throwing that error.
I can access the page opening IE and going to http://Companyweb. Opens fine. This is the confusing part. I have verified that DNS has a valid entry for companyweb as well as made sure the site in IIS is using the hostname companyweb.

Are you moving across servers and you can get there from both the source and destination servers?

Everything is on the same server, just trying to move data from one drive to another. Moved the Exch data and WSUS data without any problems.

Finally opened a ticket with Microsoft, we had a Microsoft tech log in an he resolved the issue. Unfortunately we were not shadowing so the solution was not made aware to us.

Thanks for the suggestions
