I'm trying to set up the Backup to an internal hard drive called Z: After originally installing win 7 64bit, I had to manually assign a drive letter to the hd before windows would see it. This HD has nothing on it and is not used often so its perfect for my windows backup. However, when I start the backup setup - it does not list that hard drive in my options to backup to. When I manually goto CMD to run "wbadmin start backup -backuptarget:f: -include:c:" it gives me the error saying the HD is read-only and cannot store backups.
Under disk management, I am not allowed to reformat the z: drive - it says "Windows cannot format the system partition on this disk." It lists the Z: drive as being system, active, primary partition - WHY DOES WINDOWS THINK IT IS THE SYSTEM HD? It has 100% free space according to diskmanagement.
I ran a chkdsk on z: (it is still going on step 5) and there doesn't seem to be any errors yet :/ Any suggestions?
