WS2012R2 Essentials - Moving Folder to another drive

Crowsfan 1 Reputation point

I'm trying to move the Client Computer Backups folder under the Server Folder tab in the Storage section of the Essentials Dashboard. The drive is filling up and I need to move it to a larger drive. Repeated attempts fail with a "Windows Server Essentials Computer Backup Service cannot be stopped" message. Stopping the service does not change the message. I can move other Folders without error.

    1.Kindly note that "dynamic disks is not supported in Windows Server Essentials", please ensure that the drive or folder to be moved to is not dynamic disks.

    2.Kindly verify the status of Windows Server Essentials Management Service when you failed to move the backup folder and test by manually starting it.

    Hope this helps and please help to accept as Answer if the response is useful.
