BACKUP DATABASE [DB] TO DISK = N C:\Program File... failed with the following error:

The backup operation has detected an unexpected file in a FILESTREAM container. The backup operation will continue and include file C:\FSFfta\Fsa.vbs

I get the above error daily on the backup maintenance scheduled job - what do I need to do to resolve this? (I didn't get an error when backed up manually). How can I check what is the state of the backup, and whether it can be restored?

  • Can you include which DB and version that you are using

  • The only way to know for sure if a backup can be restored is to restore it... I would guess you're fine, but I've never experienced that error before. It seems like a descriptive enough error though...
