Windows 7: Backup server problems

Backup server problems

I have set up an HP XW 9400 Workstation on my local network to serve as a backup server for my other four computers. The system disk drive (c has 156 of 186GB free, and the drive on which I save the backups has 109 of 465GB free.

I set up the backup drive with separate folders for each machine being backed up, since I ran into a problem trying to do an image backup of more than one machine. Now I'm getting messages saying that an invalid MediaID.bin file exists when I try to back up one of my systems.

Why is it so difficult to make Windows 7 backup work? Am I missing something? (Probably am. It's usually the nut behind the wheel that's at fault.)

You have to have Win 7 Professional or above to back up on a network using the built in back up.
