Take a screen capture of disk management when it comes up.

I assume you are trying to back up Acer to Mybook (C to L).

That’s about 160 gigs that you want to back up to a drive with 913 gigs of free space.

I don’t see any size issues.

Windows Backup isn’t exactly intuitive from what I hear. I can only guess it is misbehaving or you have made some incorrect choices during the process.

I’m no authority on that application and will defer to others. Good luck.
