Windows 7: Backup Win7

Backup Win7

I am using an Iomega 500 GB eGo External Hard Drive to back up my system. I am getting an I/O Error before the backup is complete. I have checked my device and it is operating fine. I just installed (full) Win 7 Home Premium Edition.

Is this I/O near the end of the backup? Is the I/O error on your OS (source) drive or is it the external Iomega drive?

I recall reading a potential fix for these strange I/O errors. Is this a "system image" or a regular "file backup"?

Yes, the error occurs at about 75%, system image!

What is the specific 0x........ error code?

Or, check the event log:

Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event viewer.

Once in Event Viewer, open > Applications and Service logs, >Microsoft, >Windows, >Backup. Take a look at those events and see what pops up.

I suspect that it would apply to Win 7 as well.

I/o Error

I ran the chkdsk as instructed and the process stalls at stage 4 of 5? LOL this is getting ridiculous. The operating light on my external hard drive goes out when I do this chkdsk procedure.

It sounds like you have a problem with your drive then. Download HD Tune and run it against the disk and see what we get.HD Tune website
