I have used Window 2012 backup but I have problem starting it today. It shows "reading data..." under Window 2012 backup but it never return any data. The attached storage works fine and backup data is there.

Reboot the server but I still get the same problem. Any idea ?

    It is quite hard to find a solution by only looking at this brief description.
    Is there anything in the event viewer (error message) that have anything to do with issue? Is the Windows Backup service started? Do you happen to have any other issue with the server (slow read performance on disks could also be a disk issue in general).

    No message is logged. Window Backup is started and the disk seems normal. Tks

    How long have you been waiting for the backup to start? Because it sounds rather strange that the backup isn't starting but nothing is logged. It could well be that the machine is doing something different and therefore the backup doesn't have enough resources to start, could this be the case??

    Finally, I use another backup solution, Tks anyway.
