Windows 2012 Server VDS Basic Errors 2@01010016

Windows 2012 R2 Standard 64 Bit

Just installed this Server was running Windows 2003 never had this error on the backup drive which is an external USB  1TB drive
NTBACKUP was used on Windows 2003 to backup system to this drive.

Now on Windows 2012 this happens when I run wbadmin backups of the server I used mksbackup which is a nice front end for wbadmin.
I have another Windows 2012 server with exact same UDB drive and exact same backup process and this does not happen,

Here are the event errors

I ran a full scan disk no errors

Do I have a bad drive?

Should I try a format?

Thoughts

Thanks

Dave,

Thanks for responding

Do you mean physically swap the drives between the two servers?

It is strange that the backup job runs successfully even with those errors

I ran another full disk scan and no errors appeared

Thoughts?
David Johnson, CD, MVPOwnerCommented:
Do you mean physically swap the drives between the two servers? yes, you have a backup device that works flawlessly and one that gives errors.  So it is either the computer or the drive.  If the working drive works fine on both machines then we know it is the drive, if we get the same error with both drives then we know it is a computer problem.

I just ordered a new USB drive will be in tomorrow.

Taken the Working drive off my production machine is not possible at this time

Will see if the new drive has this issue

It is a different model and is 2 TB in stead of 1 TB
Windows 2012 can work with 4096 Bytes per sector where 2008 would not.

So this new drive should be no problem.

But if we need to swap the drives I can do that in a few days

Thanks

Dave,

After scanning the drive no errors that night.

Got new 2 TB USB drive Replaced the 1TB drive and no errors now

Looks like the drive may have had a bad sector or something

Going to remove that drive from the system tonight.

Thanks
