Windows 7: Next backup date shows as 12/30/1899 12:00 AM

Next backup date shows as 12/30/1899 12:00 AM

Hello,

I have been searching on how to correct this error. When I open Windows 7 Backup Program, I'm getting the "Next backup date shows as 12/30/1899 12:00 AM"?

I have been changing it to eveyday at 6 p.m. and run the backup.

After a reboot it changes back to "Next backup date shows as 12/30/1899 12:00 AM"?

This has just started sometime in the last month.

I have seen this question posted in Microsoft's Forum but can not find the fix. The last answer to this common error is use a different backup software. I'd prefer to stick with Windows backup.

Does anyone know if this bug has ever been squashed?

Thank You!

Hello Rockit,

Double check to make sure that your time and date, time zone, and BIOS CMOS date is set properly.

Also, check in Task Scheduler (taskschd.msc) as below, to see what the AutomaticBackup task's "Trigger" date is set as, and change if needed.
Task Scheduler Library\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsBackup

In addition, you could see if resetting Windows Backup to default, then set up a new backup to hopefully sort this.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks Shawn,

Tried all your suggestions and still having the same issue. I even tried a new battery on the motherboard.

Like I said this one seems to have allot of people stumped. It is all over the web and in the Microsoft forums with no fix. I'm going to try a few more idea's but it may require a clean install of Windows.

Any other tips I can try would be greatly appreciated

Since this started last month, it may be a Windows Update from the second Tuesday responsible. I'm not seeing the issue though.

You might also go through the Windows Backup logs at the location below to see if they may have anything in them. Double clicking the .evtx file will open it in Event Viewer.
C:\Windows\System32\winevt\Logs\Microsoft-Windows-Backup.evtx
You might give this a try below to see if it may help narrow down a cause since it's resetting to that date every reboot.

I tried deleting the previous backups and doing a clean install. Also removed all scheduled backups and changed the time of day when setting up the backup schedule again. Went threw the registry and cleaned it up some.

The Problem is still there.

Here is a link to the Microsoft Forum where this issue is still unresolved.

I must admit that I'm stumped if it's still there after a clean install.

Sorry about the typo, I was trying to refer to the clean startup link that was provided in the previous post.

But I understand your frustration. I will keep a eye on it and if I'm able to find a way to correct it, I'll post back. I may do a clean install but not till I have the time.
None of the posts in the Microsoft Forum are mine.

Thank You

No problem, just wait for the Second Coming, we'll be back to year 0000, then a little patience for 1899 years and all will be fine.

Sorry, couldn't resist

Now I did a clean install and the backup date and time seems fine.

I did attempt to restore this system to a backup from a month ago and it would not complete it.

I kept getting a error about "not enough space" This has started happining ever since I installed a SSD and cloned my old Hard Drive to it.

I'm starting to loose hope that Windows built in backup will work with a SSD.

How much free space do you have on the backup drive and the drive you are trying to restore it to?


If in a crunch, the tutorials below can help show you how to manually extract files from a backup or system image.
