Yippie! I broke my Home Server (again)!

A week ago I was getting this...

Click here error

Now when viewing a backup of my desktop I get this towards the end:

Backup service not running

Which is quickly followed by this:

Cannot connect to backup service

And these errors in the server's event log:

Unexpected error 0x5aa from ReadFile on D:\folders\{00008086-058D-4C89-AB57-A7F909A47AB4}\Data.4096.0.dat: Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.


Client Backup server failed at d:\qhsv1_rtm_qfe\qhs\src\backup\util\diskfile.cpp(383)

Now the question… (given this isn't the first time I've achieved this state) if I wipe out all of my backups today… can I make this fail again in the same way in 2 weeks (the time since the last backup wipe out)?

Thanks though to a little bit of hackery:

"Which Drive Is Failing Me?" Add-in - Right Click

made possible with a test add-in:

"Which Drive Is Failing Me?" Add-in

I know which drive is currently suspect for the next time I get into this state. Now to expand the add-in further while I wait for the next failure.


  • Have you gotten any further w/ your drive failure testing component? I think I'm in the same situation, and I'd like to know for sure before ripping the drive out of my Home Server.

  • I'm afraid not... it keeps getting shuffled to the rear.
