Hi Everyone

I have a virtual server that backs up daily to a virtual disk, however until recently the attached error { 1.png } has started occuring.
What i have noticed is that if i go into server manager and click on disk managment i get the error { 2.png }.
After a reboot the backups work find for about 2 days, then it starts all over again.

Please help

In most cases this error could be caused by file reading errors. I would suggest You:

1. checking the hard drive with check disk utility (or by command line using "chkdsk /f /f" )
for more information: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb491051.aspx

after disk check utility, please check the log and see if Your hard drive doesn't have bad sectors.


2. check system files, for more information http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa382541%28v=vs.85%29.aspx
