Windows 7: BSOD Whenever I save directly to any external drive

BSOD Whenever I save directly to any external drive


I did a clean install of windows 7 32bit in January and in February I started receiving the BSOD whenever I would edit files on or save directly to any external drives. This includes flash drives and even the SD camera memory card when inserted into my card reader. As soon as I press save, the system immediately shuts down and the only way I get around the problem is by copying files onto and off the drives which apparently doesn't cause a problem. If I try to drag files off of the drives it also shuts down so any modification seems to make the system crash.

I am attaching the minidump file. I hope this is the right document. I followed the directions on the how-to but when I try to open the file it looks like a bunch of figures I don't recognize. Thanks in advance for helping me!

The dump shows the offending driver to be CBUFS.SYS (Commodo Backup). MAke sure you have the most current version of the program. If so and you are still getting BSOD then uninstall the program and use a different backup program.

save file on external drive not the same as internal drive
Why do files moved to an external drive not behave the same as those same files in an internal drive? I noticed that if I do anything to a file that is in an external drive, that file can not be saved under the same name (read only). In order to do so one must save it internally and then copy or...
