WS2012E Server Backup: Windows backup timed out before the shared point was created


Recommended Posts

Recently began receiving the following error message on my WS2012E box after it attempts to run the scheduled server backup. Server backup consists only of the C: (OS) drive and no \serverfolders shares.


The scheduled backup did not finish successfully and returned the following error code: 2155348001.


Windows Backup timed-out before the shared protection point was created. Detailed error: the creation of a shadow copy has timed out. Try this operation again.


When I attempt to retry, the same error persists. Any assistance would be much appreciated. Thanks.

If that doesn't work. Delete the server backup profile and create a new one.


I've made both changes though I think this suggestion may have resolved the issue. Not quite sure how a backup profile would become corrupted. Seems Microsoft still has several bugfix opps for future service pack. However, all-in-all, I've loved the stability of WS2012E. Light years beyond WHS 2011.
