SYMPTOMS
On a Windows Server 2008-based computer, you use a program that uses the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) to transfer data to a disabled hard disk drive or to a disabled removable storage device. When you do this, the data transfer fails. After you enable the hard disk drive or the removable storage device and you try to transfer the data again, the data transfer still fails.
WORKAROUND
To work around this issue, you must restart the BITS. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, type services in the Start Search box, and then click Services.
  2. In the Services snap-in console, right-click Background Intelligent Transfer Services (BITS), and then click Restart.
