Failed to backup some files.

Hello,

One of our clients has a Windows 2003 network with a WIndows 2003 storage server and several Windows 2003 servers,

all with Data Protector 3.50.
In the Activity Log of a full backup job there are thousands of "Error 16: File not found" errors.
When I make a new small backup job of some of thes files, the backup is OK.
Does anyone kno what might be te problem and solution?

Kind regards,

Ard Westeneng

Re: Failed to backup some files.

I'll think that the file is in a path to deep for the software, are all this files in a long path or not?

Re: Failed to backup some files.

Thanks for your reactions,

I don't think it has to do with the length of the path. I have errors like these:
Network\W2000TS\File Systems\C:\DATA\mailbackup
Error 3054: No volume files or directories were detected Bkp: ADEBOER.PST
Error 16: File not found Bkp: ADMINISTRATOR.PST
Error 16: File not found Bkp: ADRENTH.PST
Error 126: Path not found Bkp: AKLIJNSMA.PST

When I browse to \\w2000ts\c$\DATA\mailbackup these files are present.

Kind regards,

Re: Failed to backup some files.

PST files are the files where the inboxes for Outlook or a similar POP3 mail manager are stored, the most probable issue is that those files are being used at the time of the backup.
For example if you need to backup a Exchange server, you MUST use a Exchange Agent to do so.
