Backup to a network drive

I'm using an HP media vault 2210 drive and I keep getting this error (0x8007007B) when I try to backup my C: hard drive onto the network drive.

It won't work for me through the GUI, either. But it works well through the command line.

Good link here:

ERROR With network backup

I am on a home network and cannot backup windows 7 to a network drive. This is asking me to put in network credentials. I have put in network credentials witch failed, I have put in my User account login and password. I have mapped the drive and it see's the free space and attemts to backup however it says it cannot do so because of the credentials.

Any ideas?

I have the same problem. It seems to be a bug with Windows 7 beta. It does work, however, from the command line interface. Check out the link I posted above. The WBAdmin command is the only way I can get it to work with Windows 7 Beta.

Not the answer you were probably looking for but :

I'd recommend a commercial backup program such as Ghost or Acronis true image (my favourite). Backup software for data backup and disaster recovery in Windows and Linux - Acronis

Well worth the price -- you can also create bootable media so even if you totally hose up the hard drive(s) you can restore data / partitions etc etc.

Aronis takes care of multi-volumes if you backup to DVD's etc. No probs with network drives or external USB disks either.

You can backup / restore a typical home system in around 35 - 60 mins. Well worth it.

Much better than messing around with Windows backup.

You can also restore individual files even if you have made an "Image" (Partition / Disk) backup .

Testing any sort of OS using programs like acronis gives you backup and restore at any point so if you get hosed up trying to uninstall some anti-virus software for example which won't uininstall cleanly and messes up the registry you can just restore the whole system to the state it was before you installed the offending program for example.

The downside is that the last time I tried and researched Acronis TI Home, it would not install on Windows 7 x64 for most users. Now I was able to install Acronis TI Echo Workstation and use it successfully, but the program costs $83 now directly from Acronis!! Plus one has to be carefull that any boot/system partitions and whatnot are also backed up otherwise Windows 7 restorations with Acronis will fail... I've read about it, and I've tried it. It only works when I backup hidden and seemingly (to many normal users) unimportant partitions. In contract, the "-allCritical" option used with wbadmin (Windows Backup) automatically ensures that all necessary data/partitions are backed up in the event that a system restoration is requested by the user.

You are correct, though, in that Acronis TI has vastly more functionality than Windows Backup. So if Acronis TI can get the problems sorted out with Windows 7, then it will be worth the investment for most users.

Hi there
To get round the Hidden / Small Partition problem all you have to do is boot up Windows 7 from an install DVD and select REPAIR SYSTEM -- then all the boot stuff will go to the primary partition.

I actually did this deliberately -- I deleted a small partition and expanded my primary Windows partition to use the space. I then booted and when I got the Fail (NTLDR missing or some other error) I did the repair system --worked a treat.

Unless you re dual / triple / multi-booting then I prefer to have the OS in it's OWN partition (In any case I keep my data files on different partitions / disks).

If your Windows 7 DVD is build 7048 you can make it bootable by extracting the boot rec from Build 7000/7022 (or even VISTA)
and then use a program like Ultra ISO to create a bootable dvd.

Cheers

Good to know, thanks. I have done several system repairs with the install disk, but not to that extent. Good info.

The only problem i have jim is that paying out $300 for ultimate with included backupware... hate to shell out another Ben Franklin for more same TYPE of software I would already have to do the funtion... Maybe MS should/could make this software optional, , cut the price even

The program I use on my other pc's is Avanquest perfect image. Cheaper and seems to work better than Acronis(I used acronis in a corporate environment) Wouldn't recomend using Norton anything.
