Hmm, I thought I made this post, it's disappeared somehow .

Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks, it worked out great. The system won't let me rep you though.

No need to rep, for a not too modest, vain person like me , a public thank you works better.

Kari, have you had any issues with imaging after using this? I had to re-install because Macrium Reflect (Free) would no longer schedule a daily backup (image). I was getting a "Keyset does not exist" message which relates to Windows Task Scheduler. After not finding a solution that worked, I decided to reinstall Win 7 Ultimate.

My original partitioning was C & D only which as mentioned earlier above made using Win 7's native imaging a problem (& also time consuming). So I adopted your partition structure of C-OS, D-Users/ProgramData & M-Media/Downloads. By keeping D small, I thought I could again use Win 7's native imaging as a second option. The install went without a hitch & then imaged C & D using Reflect.

Next, restored both C & D to check the integrity of the images. No problems or so I thought. Decided to create system image via W7 -Backup & Restore which showed the problem I am now encountering. Error message:
The service cannot be started, either because the service it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. (0x80070422)
I verified that all required services are running but no solution has corrected this issue. Any suggestions?

See System Specs for configuration.

Please forgive me for posting this here in your tutorial thread if you think this request for resolution would be better served in a thread of its own. I have no objection to moving it. Thanks for any help.

I have had no imaging problems, both Macrium and Windows Backup have worked.

Two services important to check, ensure they are running: Background Intelligent Transfer Service and System Restore Service.

Thanks for the suggestions. Background Intelligent Transfer Service is in manual and not currently running. Cannot find a service named System Restore Service though. Can you verify the service name again?

Sorry, that was a bad typo. I meant Windows Backup Service, SDRSVC, not Restore Service. It is manual by default, should start automatically when you start backup.

Sadly this is one of the 5 or 6 service to be checked via this thread: Backup aborts with error code 0x80070422

All are running as suggested. Any other suggestions. If not I think I'll try a re-image again.

I have no ideas, I have to admit that. But if I understood your first post correctly, youy managed both to create an image and restore it with Macrium? If it works for you, use it.

As most of the geeks have at least sometimes noticed, to really understand computing you need a diploma in parapsychology . I for instance have almost never had any problems with imaging and restoring an image when it's done straight after booting. The longer I wait, running other apps and so on, the bigger the chance that something goes wrong. Of course it shouldn't be like this, thus the reference to parapsychology

Based on the above, I would strip down the boot configuration removing everything not needed, reboot and create the image straight away before doing anything else, letting backup work alone, not starting any other apps or doing anything else iat the same time. But, this is just how I do it, works for me. You must not be as superstitious as I am, some other method might be better for you.

How very true! Not sure if I'm as superstitious as you but yes, I do take what some might say are overly cautious (unnecessary) precautions. I think I'll start a thread to get to the route of this issue. Maybe Wolfgang (WHS) can chime in.


New thread started to solve initial problem of not being able to schedule a backup:
