Windows 7: Backup Error - 2147942402

06 May 2010   #1

Win 7
Backup Error - 2147942402

Have a Dell 545 ... came with Vista but never used. Upgraded to 7 when received DVD from Dell. Finally getting around to using Windows Backup (to 1TB Iomega external disk) but it fails (tried twice - said something about couldn't read file).

Went to Event logs where it says error is 2147942402 (scrnshot attached)

Saw a previous thread from General Forum - backup from server - where question was asked if disk was NTFS. My C: and the 'target disk' ar4 both NTFS.

What to do??
