I got the Sentinel a few weeks ago. I am slowly transferring files from where they have been stroed around my network on the Sentinel - so that I can use it as the File Server. I am trying to have one central location for all my files.
I had been using Windows Home Server. An HP box. As well as storing files scattered on the network…not good.
So now I want to use the Sentinel to Backup my individual computers on the network. Even though I plan on storing 99% of my files on the server, I would like to have each machine backed up-because if a hard drive on one of them crashes, it can take almost a full day to rebuild the machine-with installing software etc.
Once I get this feature set up, I plan on setting up an external backup of the Sentinel. My problem right now is that the backup service starts as scheduled, but then stops almost immediately. When I try to do it manually-it only gets about 1% done, then stops. When I ‘View Details’, it says insufficient storage available for backup.
Any ides on how to troubleshoot.
