Windows 7: Starting Windows Backup... ... ... ...


29 May 2012   #11

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1
 
 

X-Fast USB is a program that comes with ASRock brand motherboards. It's supposed to speed up transfer times by some percentage. I believe they have updated it since then so it will no longer be a problem, but I haven't cared to check it.

They have other cute little things to tweak their motherboards, sending more power to USB ports and such to charge some rechargable gadgets faster and such. They're probably great for some people, but I haven't bothered after wasting so much time with this one.

edit: <Marks thread as solved> I didn't know I could do that.

It came on the installation disk of my ASRock motherboard. It can also be downloaded on their website. It is intended for use with select ASRock mobos. Perhaps there is a setting that is conflicting, but I just uninstalled it to solve the problem.

Thank you sooooooo much for posting your solution. I've been struggling with a new ASRock based PC build not allowing system restores for a couple days now to no avail. I uninstalled X-Fast USB and X-Fast Lan (for good measure) and system restore works perfectly now after a reboot.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. Hopefully other ASRock X-Fast USB victims will find this thread.

(Just to hopefully get this some more Google hits, here's my original error code info: the creation of the shadow copy has timed out 0x81000101)

I am another Asrock victim who is thankful for your solution. It worked!!! I didnt find XFast very useful anyway. Never dreamed it was blocking so many services. Thank you. Thank you.

And yet another AsRock MB owner that can now create a restore point in Windows 7 (64-bit), by uninstalling the xfast USB utility that came with the MB. What a great find hortwort and THANKS so much for posting. I have worked on this problem for a long time!

An old thread I know but many thanks for picking up on Xfast being the problem with creating restore points. I had tried everything on a new build but could not get create restore to work. Having uninstalled Xfast the create restore worked in seconds. My system is also way quieter as the hard drives are not being written to as frequently. The whole system is now much faster. I also had issues with install shield hanging for ages while installing software. That appears to be gone also! Regards, Brian
