Hello mcquam.



The little bit of googling I just did comes back with network errors, are you trying to backup from a network?

Are you maybe trying to backup to the very same drive that you are desiring to backup?

Post a copy of disk management output with your next post.


VIEW YOUR DISKS


WIN | type DISKMGMT.MSC | ENTER
WIN is the key with the flag on it.
This will run the Disk Management program and display info re your disks.

ALT SPACEBAR combo | X key
This will maximize the Disk Management display.

WIN | type SNIPPING | ENTER
This will run the "Snipping Tool" whcih allows you to take a picture of part or all of the screen.

Attach the "snip" to your next post.

Hi thanks.

No I am backing up to a separate physical disk. It is formatted with MBR and I wondered if maybe that could cause the error?

And you are trying to backup which drive(s) to which drive?

I suspect that you have some pointers to drive M on your C or your D.

Let's see if you can perform a System Image backup from just C to M

Now this is a system image backup and NOT a backup of data folders, although the system image backup will include folders.

The Win 7 terminology is very confusing.

For a backup which will enable you to restore your computer to a prior state, then the system image backup does everything for you. The "data" backup allows you to perform incremental updates of, for example, your documents library and produces zip files

To perform a system image backup, plain and pure, then when you start up Win 7 Backup and Restore, choose from the LEFT-HAND PANE,
choose Create a system image

Let me know how this goes.

and you tried to make an image of C and only of C to M?

Has M ever been formatted? Is it formatted as NTFS?

Is M accessible?

Do you not have a CD/DVD device on this computer?

Yes image of only c to m.

Yes, NTFS.

I can copy files to M and use them (jpegs at least).

Yes, DVD - perhaps I cut it off with the snipping tool.
