can't read security information - error 1101


Recommended Posts

when I'm doing a backup of all computers in a domain, there is one computer that is giving me the errors:


File "C:\folder\sub\pro\": can't read security information, error -1101 (file/directory not found)


Trouble reading files, error -1102 (drive missing/unavailable)


File "C:\drift.mpeg": can't read, error -1101 (file/directory not found)


Does anyone know what would cause this on this computer?


The computer is running windows server 2003, I have the open file backup add-on, the folders are there, I'm using the rbu user....what am I missing?

If the errors happen on the same files every time:


Move (don't copy) the problem files to another physical disk.

Defrag the source disk

Copy the files back


This will guarantee that the files are rewritten to a new location on disk and that directory information about the files is updated. That should take care of it.
