Office 365 backup fails for some mailboxes
I have random office 365 mailboxes fail backup with error. Windows error: (0x80070057) The parameter is incorrect.
A single system is backing up all office 365 mailboxes. some work correctly others don't. I have deleted the backups and the backup files and it still occurs.
Multiple customers have the same problem so it can't be the site or the office 365 domain.
I gathered from your description that the backup is running to a local storage, is that correct?
If it is, then judging by your step "deleted backups and retried", it may indicate that the storage media may be at fault, I would advise you to check that as the first step.
Windows error 0x80070057 in general indicates impossibility to make a certain command to a storage.
Reasons behind may vary:
Misconfigured registry keys
- can be fixed by 3rd party tools
damaged system reserved partition
- can be fixed by chkdsk if you assign a letter to the partition
Misconfigured decimal symbol settings
- The error is likely to occur if the decimal symbol is not set to ‘.’ (dot).
If these advises would be helpful, please let me know.
