ISSUE: Backup Source cannot include the location for storing the system backup (MS Windows System backup)

Article ID: 5310
Reviewed: 27/02/2018

Product Version:
AhsayACB / AhsayOBM: 7.3.0.0 or above
OS: Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10

Problem Description

When creating a MS Windows System backup set, the following error message is displayed on the backup client interface:

Backup Source cannot include the location for storing the system backup

Temp Location

Cause

The message suggests the temporary storage location is invalid.

It is a requirement of Windows Backup Feature (WBAdmin.exe) that the volume selected for storage must be different than the volume selected for backup. In other words, you cannot configure a backup of C:\ and have the temporary storage location configured to C:\ as well.

Resolution

To resolve the issue, select another volume for the temporary location of the system backup.
