Windows 7: Backup Win7

I've read something about how to fix regular FILE backup which I think applies here. However, it makes NO sense why the end of your partition would be accessed (link from kado) as their likely aren't any files there.

Shrink your partition (source to start with) and see if those bad clusters on the source are what's causing this.

There's probably a shrink partition tutorial on sevenforums.....

It's quite simple once you see the screen images/instructions.

What would shrinking the partitions accomplish Jim? Other than to make more room on the HD?? I have 500 GB on this thing, I don't think it takes more than that to do an image backup?

Your problem is not really similar to this one, but worth a try.

Backup and Restore Error: The backup failed. New bad clusters were found on the source volume. These clusters were not backed up. (0x8078007D)

The aforementioned website has a ton of really good solutions.
