Windows 7: Scheduled backup cancelled, yet can run manually

Scheduled backup cancelled, yet can run manually

On the backup and restore management screen, it says ‘backup cancelled’. I had setup on a regular weekly schedule. Go to manage backups, I see backups through out 2011. The last one 12/2011. The last backup field says ‘Never’…yet backups exist. Short of it, I cannot find the reason backups would not run. Windows has an extremely poor ability to view just what is going on with backups.

Assuming it might be a space issue. I deleted all but a few of the last backups in manage backups, and reset the schedule so backups would run overnight. This morning, same results, backup cancelled. So…I clicked on ‘Backup now’…and it runs to completion successfully. The last back field was updated with today’s date/time.

What is going on with this??

I've been having the Same Hassle with WIN7 Home Premium for 17Months, unless I find a cheap Backup Package, that works, I'm Going with Apple, This Is reminding me of the cash I wasted on Win ME, for all of 12 hrs. before throwing it in Garbage, and Reininstalling 2000.

I gave up. Using EaseUS todo. To bad you can get a basic answer from a Microsoft forum.
