Windows 7: Backup error - Error code 0x8078002A and I/O

16 Nov 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Win7 64bit - Backup Error 0x8078002A & I/O device error 0x8007045D

I hope that someone out there is able to guide me through in resolving this issue if it has already been reported and resolved.

My computer is running on Win 7 Home Premium 64bit. My computer was made-to-order with 2 HDD of 1TB. First HDD was partitioned to C drive (OS software) and E drive (other softwares). F drive is made up of 1TB of document files and music. In total, my computer storage is made up of 2TB. I had this computer installed early this year and have forgotten to create System Image and System Repair disc. Recently my computer started bugging me to backup which I realised that I might not have ever done any.

I bought a 4TB Seagate Backup Plus drive, hoping that it would handle the job as well as in case I should further add HDD in the future. I tried to backup my computer into the Seagate backup and encountered the attached image.

I've read a couple of forums mentioning that I should "Registry Reviver" to resolve the issues I encountered. It was discovered that I had many errors which I purchased Registry Reviver to resolve thinking that by doing so, I am able to successfully run backup afterwhich. I was very wrong. I didn't managed to backup anything

Since I have already purchased the external HDD, it's too late for me to return and ask for a refund. Is there any resolution to this issue? Will loading Windows 8 instead help? I am very concerned that I will lose all my files and programmes if nothing is done soon.

I hope to hear from someone out there if they had this issue and what was done to resolve it.

Thank you.
