Can the Server 2008 R2 wbadmin command be used to backup folders within a volume that is larger than 2 TB?
I have a Server 2008 R2 server that has a single RAID 5 volume that is larger than 2 TB in size.
Because of this, I am unable to use the built in Windows Server Backup utility to backup either my entire Server 2008 R2 volume. I have tried using the Windows Server Backup utility to backup single folders contained on my Server 2008 R2 C: drive but I am also unable to do this.
I was told that I would be able to get around this by using the wbadmin command line command.
I have used the exact same command on two Server 2008 R2 servers which both have the same folder structure, backup source, and backup path.
This is the command that I have typed in on both computers:
wbadmin start backup -include:c:\windows -backupTarget:\\127.0.0.1\Backup
The result has been that this command line command works just fine on the Server 2008 R2 server that has a 1 TB volume, but it never works on the other Server 2008 R2 server whose C: drive volume in larger than 2 TB in size.
Please clarify for me if this wbadmin command can be used to backup folders within a Server 2008 R2 volume that is larger than 2 TB.
