Exchange Server backup failing...

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am relatively new to Retrospect. I am running SBS Premium 7.5.370 on SBS 2003, running Exchange 6.5, and have recently been experienceing problems backing up the Exchange Server. I'm not sure if this is normal, but when selecting the Exchange Server as a backup source, it comprises two subvolumes: 'First Storage Group' and 'SRS Storage'. When I try and backup this source, 'First Storage Group' seems to be backed up succesfully, but when it gets to 'SRS Storage', I get the following error:


- 27/02/2007 08:42:53: Copying SRS Storage

Backup type: Full

MapError: unknown Windows error -1,029

Trouble reading files, error -1004 (Database Backup/Restore error)

27/02/2007 08:45:22: Execution incomplete

Remaining: 2 files, zero KB

Completed: 0 files, zero KB

Performance: 0.0 MB/minute

Duration: 00:02:29


Anyone got any ideas what could be causing this?

Hi Chris -


SRS is used to connect Exchange 5.5 and Exchange 2003. If you only have one Exchange Server then SRS is not needed. The following link will show you how to remove it:




If you are unfamiliar with SRS - what it does or if you need it - you should consult with an expert prior to making any changes to your system.
