I have four different drives backed up on a 2008 r2 server and the OS drive is the only drive that will not convert to a VHD. It fails every time. I have created conversion jobs for the other drive individually and they all run fine all using the same settings and locations as the OS conversion job but it fails.
With this error??
Error EC8F1F48: The 'Microsoft VHD' conversion process could not be completed.
Error EC8F1F46: An error occurred trying to retarget the virtual disk F:\DLC\Backup-hyperV\Backup-HyperV_C_Drive.vhd.
Error E0BB0004: Function Retarget Virtual Disk argument Mount Point is invalid. (UMI:V-281-3215-8008)

The other drives that do convert are using the same back file form the same location and saving the conversion to the same location which is actually a local drive on this server.

Actually I have found that when this happens if I delete all of the old backup strings and create a new base imagine it will run the virtual conversion again. I have an automate conversion running each weekend for all my servers. Not really sure why they sometime start failing except that something in the daily image becomes corrupt. I have also upgraded to the 2013 version but that didn’t fix the issue
No Things are currently converting. But I did come acrossed something different. I backup exchange 2010 and needed to restore a mail enabled public folder. While trying to do this I found it was not a simple task. Restoring a regular mailbox is pretty nice with the grandular restore option. But I found that public folders have no such option to access the emails from the backup. The only way to restore is by overwriting the entire public folder DB. Would be nice if it was part of the grandular restore option.
