Windows 7: Back up problem

Back up problem

I tried couple of times to make a image back up of my OS partition but I get a message that some files were skipped. I'm doing the back up after relogging and I'm not even moving the mouse. No programs on the start up except the anti-virus and few gadgets :? Can you tell me what's the problem? Yesterday I reinstalled my Windows and installed again my programs.

Hi pafkata90.

The first thing I would suggest is run sfc /scannow on your hard disk and then retry the backup.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I could be mistaken, but isn't that a screen shot of your backup and restore, which is not the results of system image, but the results of the personal documents that you backed up?

In fact, it says back up and restore and it also mentions the few personal files that were backed up.

Files were missed because you can choose which files to back up.

Richard, I think you're right. I've chosen the documents back up Thanks. I've started the correct one and I'll write when it's finished
