Serverbackup schedule can not be setup


Recommended Posts



I try to explain it in English what I already placed in a German forum without any answer for weeks.


When I first installed my WHS2011 with Server Backup it ran fine. After a while (some month) I checked the status and the backup was not done for several approaches.

I deleted the backup plan and changed the external drive. (from 320GB to 320 GB).

Than I tried to setup the server backup plan again. I give all my details in and when I click start for setting it up I receive an error message which is similar to

"A file can not be created if it is already existing"


To be on a little save side I did a single backup which was running fine.


Do you have any Idea which file could already exist or how to solve this?

Did you configure it from the dashboard? If so, try running "wbadmin.msc" on the server, or use "Windows Server Backup" from Administrative Tools. That may give you a more meaningful error, if it errors out.

I did it first via dashboard and tried after that with wbadmin.msc. Both times the same "Error" Message appears with not more info.

I am really totally lost
