The requested object does not exist. Error

This has been reported a couple of times before but I can't see a reply that has solved the issue.


Any ideas on how to make the command below work - this is running on 2008R" and running two VM's one 2008R2 and one 2003

C:>c:\HVBackupProg\HVBackup.exe -a -o g:\backup

For me the problem turned out to be that I had upgraded a hard drive to one with the newer 4K bytes per sector specification, which the Volume Shadow Copy Service, (that HVBackup uses,) doesn't support on Windows Server 2008 R2.

See the article here:

I get the same error on Windows 2012 R2 which does support 4K byte sectors.

Jemson, what did you do to resolve you backups?
