Client PC backups have failed on WD Sentinel DX 4000 NAS Server

Saxitalis used Ask the Experts™
Hello Experts,

I am running a WD Sentinel NAS server to perform backups on PCs on my network. I have a couple of PCS that have stopped backing up.

Please see the attached word file with screenshots:

1.      Automatic backups have been failing. Below screenshot properties of one PC
2.      Error when performing manual backup on this PC instead
3.      Tried to remove this PC in order to re-install connector but get this error

Does anyone know how to fix this so my PCs will backup to the NAS server again?

What is doing the backup? Windows backup on each machine or are you using Windows Server Essentials to backup the machines?
The first thing to do is to check the health of the drives.  Open the admin console for the NAS and do that.  The second is to find out why you have corruption in the backup database.  Are other PC's having the same problem?


Thanks for reply Davis,

Looks like I have  a bad drive (See attachment). FYI- 2 PCs are backing up normally - 2 PCS get the errors.
You need to close this and award the points, please!
