So after I gave up with Synctoy I tried to use the so awesome best backup methode which is built in, and who would have guessed that, it doesn't work correctly. I'm trying to make a backup including system image (I choosed the userfolder and Programdata folder as normal backups) and I just got some error that it can't be completed due to some I/O error, code 0x8078012D. I have done some googling and found out that this problem already exists since 2 years and it keeps existing. Seriously, is there even any solution for this or is it impossible to fix this? Does the backup function with system image even work for anyone at all? Or is it just some commercial stuff to make windows look better? Why does microsoft throw out such stuff which doesn't even work after 2 years? What's so hard about copying some files to external hdd? All I want is to backup my hdd and to do some fast backups like with Synctoy, which only copy new/changed files so that I don't have to waste my HDD lifetime by copying each week over 300 GB onto it. What can I do to make built in backup function work? And if there really is no way to make it work, what other programs could I use? I already know good methods such as copying the complete partition with Gparted for Knoppix or Acronis Disc Director Suite boot CD but then I still got the problem (aw I accidently wrote program here, see, programs=problems
) that it takes ages because I must always re copy the whole partition. Any suggestions?
I do not use some 3rd party AV or Firewall, I use built in Firewall + Firewall control and Microsoft security Essentials, also I didn't do anything on my PC, just checked how far the backup was already completed and also didn't run any programs which would cause much CPU usage or mess my computer up.
My external HDD is brand new and I can easily copy 1TB of data onto it without geting any error (SMART would have noticed broken sectors anyway), and my internal HDD is also fine. (no bad sectors)
All those services like shadowcopy are running, too.
