I formatted my external drive and got this result. Problem is I cannot format the disk every time I want to do a backup. This was using Windows 7 backup.

You will be pleasantly surprised.
I will.

Have to wait for when this stinking cold that I have gets better.

Best free backup software and Norton Ghost alternative - EaseUS Todo Backup Free

Keeps giving a verification code error.

Thanks again.
Try the link I gave you.
