Windows Trying to Format H: drive

Veeam Logoby davegold » Sun Jul 05, 2015 2:24 am

I've been running VEB for a while on a Windows 7 32-bit desktop.

Recently, I've gotten repeating OS popups prompting me to format the H: drive.

The only cause I can think are the persistent vss shadows that Veeam creates when it starts up. I would have thought these would not be left mounted, but perhaps they are.

Anyone run into this?

Hi Dave,

What is the H drive in question? Do you have it plugged in? What's your target for VEB job?

Thanks!

Hi,
I've gotten repeating OS popups prompting me to format the H: drive.

From the top of my head, the only place where this operating system prompt might pop up is while creating the recovery media on removable media (since the removable device must be formatted in order to create a bootable device), even though it should be specifically suppressed. We definitely need more info regarding the said H: drive
