Windows 7: Backing up data Error "The request is not supported" Error 0x80070032

Backing up data Error "The request is not supported" Error 0x80070032

Hi All

I have been trying to back up all my important data onto an external hdd. The external hdd i am using is a WD 2tb. I am currently running Win 7 x64 with 2 x hdd wd 2tb set-up in raid 1 for hdd failure. I would like the external one as a backup weekly in case of file corruption.
However when i go into setup, i get the following msg "The request is not supported" Error 0x80070032. I have read through a few threads on this forum with regards to task scheduler and event log they all seem to be set as required. There is also suggestion that win 7 may not be able to handle large hdd sector size, something about 4k versus 512.

Please help ! If you do have any info for me could you please explain in laymen's terms as i am only an amateur at this and sometimes the explanations given are a bit confusing.

Thanks in advance.

Hello lech1985 and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you're using the built-in Windows 7 imaging and back-up tool that might be the problem. I've heard that it's not able to consistently and accurately read/write large volume data. You could try a different free image and back-up software to see if it makes a difference. Some of the recommended programs are:

Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download

Free Backup Software: Paragon Backup & Recovery Free Edition - Overview

Best free backup software. Hard drive backup and recovery, image and clone freeware - EaseUS Todo Backup Free

DriveImage XML Backup Software - Data Recovery Product

Clonezilla live

Thanks marsmimar for the welcome. I was going to resort to using a third party i just wanted to see if some of the guru's may have been able to help with a fix. I am pretty sure i am not the first one to have this problem it has been frustrating me for the last few weeks trying to set it up especially with my limited knowledge. If no one else can advise me otherwise i will definitely use one of the above.

Thanks for you reply.
