The LDM database cannot be used

We have recently installed a new server for a client (SBS 2008) and installed BESR 2010.
The installation was successful yet when running the first backup job, the following error occurs.
Disk Management shows our 2 hard drives (software RAID 1) with no problems
"The LDM database cannot be used" when clicking OK, a further error is
"Error e6f10001 running job: Drive-C"

Any help, much appreciated

Try to run the CHKDSK /R command on the source system's drives.

Hi The chkdsk didn't work. i noticed that V2010 service pack 2 was available, ran this on the server, stopped and started the BESR service and the symsnap service and the backup started to work.

Resolved the problem myself by installing the latest service pack for BESR v2010
