edited April 16, 2013 8:43PM in SQL Backup Previous Versions
We have RedGate SQLBackup 6.3.0.48 installed on our OLAP Server running SQL Server 2008 having SP3 and when we are taking a backup of database having size 1.9TB we receivied the following error

665: The requested operation could not be completed due to a file system limitation.

We are able to complete Full backups on different occasions but mostly it gets failed with mentioned reason.
Need to verify if there is any issue in RegGate end or we have to do something on our end.

Help required.

    Hi Yasir,
    Thank you for your forum post and sorry that you have encountered a problem.

    Can please reply and copy the contents of the SQL Backup Log file? Right click the entry in the Activity Hostory and select show log. Hopefully the log file will contain all exit codes from Windows, SQL and SQL Backup to help accurately identify the cause.

    I suspect this error:
    665: The requested operation could not be completed due to a file system limitation.
    Is from Windows or SQL. From the notes I have on the SQL Backup Exit Codes, Exit Code 665 is used to indicate that a beta version of SQL Backup has now expired.

    I found this Microsoft ARTICLE which may help you.

    Many Thanks
    Eddie

    What was the size of the incomplete backup file, and what file system format was the disk using?

    Thanks.

  • Thanks Peter,
    The last full backup was failed at 480 GB and it should be 1.8 TB. The file system format is NTFS.

    Googling turned up some possibilities:

    - turning off NTFS compression
    - defragmenting the disk
