Windows 7: Can't Backup

Can't Backup

Widows 7 64 bit 1T HD

When I first installed all my software I did an system image backup. I tried to do another on the same HD and it tried, but eventually gave me a 'backup unsuccessful'. I tired again, same thing.

So, I ran Chkdisc in Windows (system errors and bad sectors) and defraged. Then I did basically the same thing using System Mechanic a third party utility. It got almost to the end (500G) but quit with just a few gigs to go.

Help!

Well, I can get the system specs easily enough but that will take me a day to post. But I swap external drives all the time, and how do I give you a screenshot?

Okay, Seavixen, not sure if this is fully expanded or not. I'll work on the specs.

You can't just want this, so as there is so much there, what exactly do you want?
