With apologies to Nat King Cole 🙂
Database backup failing
Write on “D:backupMyDatabaseMyDatabase_20150208104103883_D.bak” failed: 665(The requested operation could not be completed due to a file system limitation) [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 3202)
Hey, customer…let not put backups on O/S compressed drives please.
Oh…and why do you have your MDF/LDFs on the same drive…also compressed?
Resolution – punt it back to them and tell them SQL Server on compressed drives is unsupported config by Microsoft and by me. Uncompress and expand or add a drive and uncompress.
Sheesh. How many worst practices can you get in one server?
