    Backup of your NAS boxes

    Hi there
    A lot of people here back up to NAS boxes -- but remember These CAN fail as well (or at least an HDD can).
    So I do suggest that you actually backup the stuff on your NAS from time to time -- you might NEVER need it but who knows.

    NAS boxes (or things like Micro servers) are quite cheap these days -- re-installing music, re-ripping CD's and DVD's and possibly re-torrenting (assuming the stuff is still seeded any more) isn't worth the hassle.

    I now have a Backup Box -- once a week I simply just copy the HDD's from NAS1 to NAS 2 --- job done.

    I'd advise people to start thinking of things like this -- Backup is always good but you do need more than one copy. Don't rely 100% on your NAS box thinking you are 100% safe -- you probably will be but you never know.

    Again re-creating data if you have this sort of failure might not be a problem - also if you have your stuff stored in the Cloud but if you've got several TB of music, and video then the Cloud won't be a feasable backup mechanism.

    I'm actually not a big fan of commercial music streaming services or commercial digital downloads-- quality too low etc. I like High end FLAC rips of SACD's or even standard CD's - especially classical music. Things like Spotify are OK for PUB Background music or music listened to with cheap bud earphones but not for decent music listening.

    For Video -- streaming is fine but I often like to watch stuff again and a lot of streaming services only make it available for a certain period and riddle content with DRM so I choose to keep my own.

  2. 0x807800C5 error when doing a backup to a Synology external hard drive.

    I'm afraid that is not the answer.

    I am trying to back up a single partition hard drive (Windows 10) to a NAS box.

    Every time I see "Check your backup: There was a failure in PREPARING the backup image of one of the volumes in the backup set. Details: The requested operation could not be completed due to a virtual disk limitation. Virtual hard disk files must be uncompressed
    and unencrypted and must not be sparse. Error code 0x807800C5.

    The process is not getting as far as the NAS drive. It is failing at the preparation stage.

    I've rebooted everything. I've deleted the old Windows 7 image as suggested earlier. I've even moved all the files off the NAS and reformatted the RAID. But as the process doesn't finish creating the image this all seems a bit academic.

    Please help. It all worked fine in Win7. Win10 just doesn't seem to work very well. I'm considering rolling this laptop back to Win7, at least the backup worked properly there.

    Force File History from BitLocker device to NAS

    After I enabled BitLocker on my C-Drive File History refuses to make backups to my NAS. The NAS is Linux based and apparently FH doesn't do backups from a BL-protected drive to a destination where it can't be sure if it is protected.

    How do I force File History to backup to a NAS?
