I have been using Acronis Rescue disk to make images of my system. It works fine, but is a pain because I have open up the case and disconnect my secondary hard drive and change from my wireless mouse to a wired mouse. So I decided to try to the built-in Backup and Restore in Win 7 Pro and backup to an external hard drive.
In preparation for backing up my system partition, I do the following:
Clean all cookies, internet files and History.
Remove all restore points except the last one.
Run MSE version 2
Run Ccleaner (not messing with registry)
Run Smart Defrag (lastest version)
I then reboot and hook up the external hard drive
I then go into the Control Panel and select Backup and Restore. I set where I want the image to be created and start the backup. Everything looks normal for a while.
After about 4-5 minutes, NSE shows the below:
This is the only time NSE ever detects this and it detects it every time I try to backup. I have had NSE remove it or leave it alone. It does not matter.
Eventually I get the notice that the backup did not complete sucessfully.
I check the Events log and got this:
I have been through this several times and it occurs this way every time.
I would like some help solving this issue. Any help would be be greatly appreciated.
