    In accessories/system tools/backup
    when I select The Automated system recovery wizard and run it through to
    finish. I get the following error message.
    "The files for the recovery diskette could not be created. The operation
    was aborted."

    Has anyone ever had this problem?
    How can I fix it?

    Thanks,
    George Hoffmann

    Hi George,

    Thanks for your posting!

    Based on my research, this problem can occur if there are legacy Microsoft
    Windows NT FTDisk sets on the computer, which were created in Windows NT
    4.0. FTDisk sets are not supported in Windows Server 2003. to resolve this
    problem, please refer to the steps in the following KB:

    Occurs When You Use Ntbackup for Automated System Recovery
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;316456

    If you have any concern on this thread, I am glad to be of further
    assistance. We look forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards,

    Jerry,

    I tried the ftonline after installing the support tools from disk 2 of my
    small bussiness server 2003 CD disk set.

    I typed:
    '\\abraham\users\administrator'
    CMD.EXE was started with the above path as the current directory.
    UNC paths are not supported. Defaulting to Windows directory.
    Open of drive /: failed with 2

    C:\WINNT>ftonline
    usage: ftonline drive:

    C:\WINNT>ftonline f:
    Online failed with 1

    C:\WINNT>ftonline d:
    Online failed with 1

    C:\WINNT>ftonline e:
    Online failed with 1

    C:\WINNT>ftonline c:
    Online failed with 1

    C:\WINNT>ftonline g:
    Open of drive g: failed with 2

    C:\WINNT>ftonline h:
    Online failed with 50

    C:\WINNT>


    Aparently their are no FTDISK sets present.

    Hi George,

    Thanks for your response.

    Because the drive letters that are assigned to FTDisk volumes are not
    displayed in the Disk Management console (or in Diskpart), you may have to
    run the mountvol command with no arguments to determine which drive letters
    are assigned on the computer. Any drive letters that are listed by mountvol
    but are not displayed in the Disk Management console are typically FTDisk
    volumes.

    For your information:

    Disk Management Displays Previous FTDisk Volumes as "Unknown" with No Drive
    Letter

    you post it as a separate thread. That way each issue can receive full
    attention and will also make the thread more clear and consistent for
    others reference.

    Please feel free to open a new post for this issue and we will be very glad
    to work with you.
