restore jobs fail with read write error

Created: 06 Dec 2012 | 2 comments

I'm running backup exec 2010 R3 and started using the deduplication option. I've been having trouble with read write errors. I can backup with the dedup and it completes successfully but when I try to restore a file from that backup I get a storage read write error. I'm using a iscsi target on the media server as a target. I even tried deleting the whole deduplication folder, formatting the drive, and then running a new dedup backup. I can browse all of the folders just fine through windows explorer in the dedup folder. Why am I not able to restore from these successful backups?

Have you checked the NAS for any hardware issues?

Have you checked the HCL to make sure that your particular NAS is supported for dedup folder.
