Windows 7: Have a blank back up in Control Panel

Have a blank back up in Control Panel

Am trying to set up Users on another drive so that I can empty out some of my 120GB SSD. But to do so I have to set a drive to back up the system prior to going ahead.

Now my problem is I have nothing in back up and Restore in the Control Panel or rather the window opens to what is in the pic. Clicking on anything does nothing

I am about to run an SFC but it comes up nothing I am going to be stuck unless I can find another avenue of back up say clone the drive to another - an external for example.

Am wondering if anyone has any ideas on this please as I am going nowhere - fast. SFC came up no problems.

Hello John,

Double check to make sure that the Windows Backup service is enabled and set to "Automatic" may help.

Thanks Shawn but in the meantime the system has crashed and I have a Start up / repair that cycles over and over. I did post a thread and got a reply from Centaur which I am following up on after I find out what the try is that he has mentioned.
