No NTFS or Disk Related error event on Client OS , Backup Exec Server

Run dcscan --verify -q -H -a, not error. - not work for me.

 Any ideas?

upd:two weeks have passed since I deleted backup sets

Run an inventory and catalog on the storage. Sometimes, due to some error the media may still remain for some sets in the storage.

Catalog can help to read such sets and if they show up in the console, you can expire them from UI


If the intention is to start fresh, just disable delete the dedupe storage from BE console and create a new one on the D drive of the appliance. You may need to disable critical system protection in order to delete old storage from file system before starting with a new one.

Thanks, Gurvinder

I deleted and created a new dedupe storage.

Сan I manually delete an Dedupe old folder ?
