Backup Failed - Write Error - Failed to Perform...

  • I have a few servers that periodically get the following error message, mostly while doing incremental backups:

    Backup Failed - Write Error - Failed to Perform the backup operation.

    Has anyone else seen this error before? If so, have you found a solution?

    Thanks,

    Tom H

  • I see this every once in a while. Please refer to document #281149. Generally I've found that a chkdsk /F resolves the issue.

    Also I would defrag the drive but be aware that if the drive is fragmented the next backup will be larger because it uses a block level change method.

  • Are u using a Synology NAS? I've had this error. Was trying to get this fixed with kaseya support.

    Upgraded to newest BUDR 3.2. That didn't help.

    Found out that the error only occured when backing up to a NAS. After some reasearch i found an article that Acronis and DSM 3.0 (synology firmware) are not compatibly together. Has something to do with permissions etc.

    Synology released a new firmware that solved the problem.

    Not getting write errors anymore.

    If u dont have a NAS where u backup on, check your credentials and test it manually.

     

    Good luck!
