Delayed Write Fail - Windows 2000

By colin1 ·

I am having an error on Windows 2000 Server and Professional regarding Delayed Write Fail.

This occurs when backing up from a W2K machine to another W2k machine or even a WIN98 machine.

If the error was only on one machine I could
understand that it may be hardware related but on two machines I have no idea.

Any help greatfully receive

Delayed Write Fail - Windows 2000

by WazzaUK In reply to Delayed Write Fail - Wind ...

Are these all networked systems, and the copy being done to a mapped drive on the other machine? You could try doing the copy using the UNC (\\servername\sharename) as I have often seen Win2K and NT lose a network connection temporarily. Using the UNC it will make the connection at the point it needs it.
Might not help, but fairly easy to try.
