Ghost 15 - Network backup fills memory and fails; local backup works ok
12-07-2010 10:34 PM
When I try to backup the C drive across the network, it only runs successfully for about 20 minutes and then suddenly starts filling memory, causing Windows to freeze for a few minutes until the backup finally fails.
I can backup the C drive to a local USB drive without errors.
This is Ghost 15 (220.127.116.11526) on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit with 6GB memory.
The event log shows the following, but I think it is just a symptom, with the core problem being full memory:
Error EC8F17B7: Cannot create recovery points for job: Drive Backup of OS (C:\).
Error E7D1001F: Unable to write to file.
Error EBAB03F1: Error performing inpage operation.
Error E7D10046: Unable to set file size.
Error EBAB03F1: The specified network name is no longer available. (UMI:V-281-3215-6071)

There aren't any processes obviously using the memory when it is filling up, but if I use Process Explorer to pause VProSvc.exe, the memory stops filling. Here's a screenshot after I paused it at 20 minutes, just before it got full enough to freeze Windows. The "modified" memory is taking over:
This is Task Manger showing the state just after I paused VProSvc.exe:
Just for reference, this is how it looked at 12 minutes into the backup; pretty normal I think:
I would greatly appreciate any ideas. Thanks.
