Windows 7: Window 7 Backup Failing

Window 7 Backup Failing

Hello to all,
Thought I'd start a thread on a problem I have been discussing in a separate SOLVED, thread.
I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit. After installation I tried and successfully used the Backup with and without System Image and System Image. This was backing up my System/Data C: drive to my backup F: Drive. Again, no apparent problems.
I reformatted my F: drive successfully. I have run sfc /scannow several times, I'm only assuming that it checks the 2nd drive as well as the System Drive. I have run chkdsk on both drives. None of the above process' indicate any problems.
The symptoms are as follows. If I do a System Image it works correctly. If I do a Backup with or without a System Image, using Windows Option, or set myself, the Computer indicates in View Progress box the a shadow copy of C: is being made, a System Image is being made, which completes successfully, a shadow of E: (the backup) drive is being made and then it fails. Under More Detail it indicates a 0x80070006 error seemingly referencing the E: Drive. No indications of a partial backup on E: is found although it appears that the System Image stored in the
WindowsImageBackup has the appropriate time. This was noted on a backup attempt with System Image.
One of your fine members gave me a link to a discussion of this problem. It suggested disabling Windows Media from Internet and to enable the Administrator account. I have done both with no change.
As a novice above XP, another suggestion of copying and pasting wbengine was not done as I am severely anxious.
Can anyone assist? Should I try the wbengine patch or try other lines of investigation? Thanks in advance.

How do you know it works correctly?

Have you restored the image and confirmed that your PC operates properly after the restoration?

Are you committed to Windows own backup tools for some reason?

If not, I'd suggest other applications that may not have the problems you are now experiencing.

Hello ignatzatsonic,
I appreciate your reply. As you so adroitly pointed out, I do not know if it was indeed successful. Thanks for actually making that point to me!
First I will say that it was working and now isn't. This change in functionality has me concerned. I have had several niggling little issues, that I am attempting to knock of each inconsistency at a time, until all are done.
I must say that I have used it previously on XP and it worked o.k. I am not necessarily committed to its use so much as it's apparent failure to work, now on my new operating system.
Thanks for reiterating the important points and also for your time.

Good Morning (so far) from here, to you all
Just a quick update since my last post. It was considered that the wbengine.reg file was corrupted. A hyper link that was given by Anak showed how to replace it.
Following the instructions to the letter, this method for me proved unsuccessful.
Nice attempt Anak !!

I to have had issues with functionality, but I think you have reached a point where you should seriously consider a repair re-install.

Yes, I know it is a pain, and will take a few hours to accomplish, but if you prepare properly it will give you the peace of mind to know that your OS is functional, and solid.

Repair Install

The only solution for peace of mind, was a complete clean reinstall. Anak, thanks for your time and assistance. I've got to know when to cut my losses and start over.
Still in the process, but none of the problems except drive assignments have occurred obviously yet. Take care Sir!

Did a little research, and you are not the only person with assignment problems.


It rattle's on for a bit, but read this:
Repeated loss of drive letter assignment upon reboot

Especially the last post.

Thanks Steve for the link,
My problem was slightly different. Initially I installed on a single drive. Everything was fine. Later I installed a backup disk and disk management showed the 2nd drive as Disk 0 and put a 200 MB partition on it. My C: drive now became Disk 1, even though they are cabled correctly. This reinstall I decided to leave both drives. This time even though I followed the installation prompts and I believe did it correctly. My F: drive became disk 0 and was the system disk, while my C: drive became disk 1 and had the partition. Had to redue with only the C: drive in to get it to install the system on it.
Put in E: drive and it copied all the initial folders on C: to E:?? Well anyway things will be what they will be. Take care.

Steve,
Thanks maybe I will. Everything looks right in Explorer so it isn't a real problem. Just what I would call an inconsistency. Right now I am enjoying Windows 7 for the first time since I built the machine. It has no (fingers crossed) issues and if Windows Backup is (now I'm getting some differences of opinion on it's reliability) reliable. Should anything happen I can get back to running without a problem. So I as happy as pigs in slop.
I'll get feisty about it eventually but not for a while. I appreciate the thought and your help.
