Windows 7: Win 7 backup hangs on initialize.

10 Sep 2012   #1

Windows 7 ultimate x64 SP1
Win 7 backup hangs on initialize.

Windows 7 backup is hanging at the "initialize backup" screen during a first-use of the utility. Win 7 ultimate x64 has been installed for about a week. No encryption in use. SP1 installed automatically.

I have a c:\ system drive, and d:\, E:\ HDD, F:\BDROM, a CF card reader that maps drives, and NAS, Synology 4.1 volume with shared folders mapped to N:\ and O:\.

I am using Microsoft Essentials virus software.

Any ideas?
