Windows Backup I/O Error 0x8078012D - can't image recovery partition
I'm using a Sony VAIO VPCEA35FG Laptop, which has a hidden recovery partition of 13.51GB, a system reserved partition of 100MB, an 80GB Boot Drive (C: ) and a data drive of about 200GB (D: ).
I'm using Windows Backup and Restore to create a system image of everything apart from D:, and to back up the files in my user folder. It worked for a month or so (I did a factory restore to clean up before that), but then I got the following error:
"The operation failed due to a device error encountered with either the source or the destination. If the source or the destination volume is on a disk, run CHKDSK /R on the source or destination volume, and then retry the operation. (0x8078012D)
The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error. (0x8007045D)"
So I watched the backup from start to finish (rather boring), and the backup kept failing when an image of the 13.51GB recovery partition was being created.
Running chkdsk on the backup drive
Running chkdsk on C:
Formatting the backup drive
And none of these have worked. I can't run chkdsk on the hidden recovery partition, as it is hidden. What can I do?
