Use Programs and Features in Control Panel to uninstall Microsoft Office 2010 software, also uninstall "Microsoft Application Virtualization Desktop Client.", the latter should remove the Q drive.

Reboot the PC when done removing them.

If Office 2010 Click-to-Run does not meet your needs, you can uninstall it. Then, install Office 2010 by using a method other than Click-to-Run. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Uninstall the Click-to-Run version of Office 2010 from Control Panel.
  2. Visit the site where you purchased Office 2010, and sign in with the same Live ID that you used when you first purchased Office 2010.
  3. Click the My Account link at the top of the home page to access your Office downloads.
  4. Click the Download button for the suite that you purchased, and then click the Advanced Options link under the Download Now button.
  5. There is a version of Office 2010 listed that is not Click-to-Run and that does not require an available Q: drive.

Hi.

Before doing the above, please note that back up is now works again
when a HD is directly attached to the pc.

It works with a HD in NTFS format, as well as FAT32

(I don't know why it started working again, as so far have not changed anything...?)

However the problem remains when trying to backup wireless to the airport:

either

A) when i try to configure a backup it won't let me choose the network
drive/airport,saying the path is incorrect. so impossible to even start a backup

or

B) i CAN choose the network/airport and i can start the backup.
only it fails after a while, saying the path is not correct.

(A & B happen random)

For me it's not a problem to delete office 2010, but do you really think this is
creating the problem?

"create system image" backup works as well (directly attached disk)?
In elevated command prompt

Code:
 
vssadmin list shadows
vssadmin list volumes
Still vss errors? Check eventlog

yes:

1)
Volume Shadow Copy Service warning: VSS was denied access to the root of volume \\?\Volume{4a2209a7-3a1e-11e1-87c0-88532e3b8b47}\. Denying administrators from accessing volume roots can cause many unexpected failures, and will prevent VSS from functioning properly. Check security on the volume, and try the operation again.

2)

3)

Is 4a2209a7-3a1e-11e1-87c0-88532e3b8b47 listed on 9th line on right part under column name? Expand the size of that columen to see it.

uninstalled & Q is indeed gone.

however, even before & still now backup sometimes works & sometimes fails.
(even without trying to create a system image)
did several tests on 2 different HD discs.
tried complete new backups & tried to recommence a failed backup.
