Windows 7: Windows Backup Constantly Fails

Windows Backup Constantly Fails

I have been trying for a few days now to get Windows to do a full backup of my new PC. For some reason it just wont finish.

I thought perhaps it was due to other active programs so I shut down everything else that was running, still Fails.

Thought it might be a power issue so I set all the options to never shut down, never sleep, never hibernate, and the backup still fails.

And now when I try to run a backup it tells me that it can't find the drive that the backup is set to use. But I can browse the drive fine through windows explorer???

Anyone have any suggestions on a more reliable backup software?

Hello Tyson,

Macrium Reflect is an excellent alternative.

Hope this helps,
