If you have one of these recent Windows Updates installed, the backup of the System State > Registry will fail with NovaBACKUP 19.7 and older clients:
- Server 2022 - 2021-10 Cumulative Update for Microsoft server operating system version 21H2 for x64-based Systems (KB5006745)
- Server 2019 - 2021-10 Cumulative Update Preview for Windows Server 2019 (1809) for x64-based Systems (KB5006744)
- Windows 10 - 2021-10 Cumulative Update Preview for Windows 10 Version 21H1 for x64-based Systems (KB5006738 and KB5007186, the second update being a cumulative update that also contains the first update)
Resolution methods: Uninstalling the most recent update, mentioned above, should resolve the issue. Alternatively, de-selecting 'System State > Registry' in your backup job(s) would also fix this problem.
At this point, it is not likely that Microsoft will recall these particular updates, as they are likely security related concerns that prompted the changes. If they do not recall these updates then our next version of NovaBACKUP (version 19.8, due for release in December 2021) will address it and should fix it as well.
Edit 11/15/21: As of today other currently supported NovaBACKUP client OS's including Server 2012 R2, Server 2016, and Windows 8.1 are not affected by the most recent Windows Updates, as those OS's did not receive similar updates. It was also confirmed today that Microsoft did not recall any of these Windows Updates, so if you did receive the update it will have to be dealt with using the Resolution methods section above.
