Attempt to bring the De-duplication Storage device online causes the process spoold.exe to crash.

Problem

Attempt to bring the De-duplication Storage device online causes the process spoold.exe to crash.

Solution

Attempt to bring the De-duplication Storage device online causes the process spoold.exe to crash if the .bin/.bhd files are missing in the data folder of the de-duplication device.

.Bin/.Bhd may get accidentally deleted, or get deleted by the Antivirus Application or by a planned/unplanned reboot of the Media Server while a backup job targeted to the de-duplication folder it running.

Crash dump analysis shows the following:

Workaround:

1. If the files were accidentally deleted then recover the .bin/.bhd files from the Recycle Bin.

OR

2. If the files were quarantined by the antivirus application then recover them. For more details refer to  http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH129606

OR

3. Restore the files from the latest backup of User Data under Shadow Copy Component (from the time when De-duplication device was functional). Note that any data backed up to the De-duplication storage folder device since its last backup (through Shadow Copy Component) will be lost.
