Problem: When backing up certain mailboxes on my Exchange 2010 server, I get the following error:
Trouble reading files, error â€“1010 (API request bad)
Then the backup fails and only part of the mailbox was backed up. I have narrowed the problem down to a possible corrupt or â€œmissingâ€ file. Reason why I know this is because I got a â€œcant read, error â€“1101â€ message error for the inbox. When I removed the Inbox from the selection, the â€“1010 and -1101 error went away. Problem is that removing the Inbox from the selection is not a good solution so I need to figure out how to repair this inbox…
I have tried reinstalling the client, New-MailboxRepairRequest within the Exchange Shell. Nothing so far as worked.
Solution: No solution yet. Retrospectâ€™s forum hasnâ€™t helped and itâ€™s most likely an Exchange issue but retrospect should be able to skip those files and move on instead of giving up on the whole backupâ€¦ If you have any ideas, please post in the comments..
