Windows 7: Backup access denied

OK. I see from disk management that it's formatted as ntfs.

Now there is no way a system image of C and only C to M can fail unless you have a corrupted system or you have references to M on the C.

To test, you can shrink M in half-its empty anyway-create a new partition in the empty space and name it N or whatever. Now try the "create a system image" specifying C and C only as "source" and the new drive, N, as where to put the backup.

OK.

Let me take a walk and see if I can figure out what you are doing.

Because according to what you say you are doing, then there is no way that message could ever appear.

If you were trying to back up c to d, then we would see something like that.

But only imaging with none of that other stuff ("backup"), then all should run smoothly.

I can only suggest running SFC (system file checker).

If that shows up nothing, then contact Microsoft as you have a one in a million case which has never happened before.

Yes, I did exactly as you said.

I ran sfc.exe and something popped up and disappeared. Where do I find the report?

Please also see my previous thread which was resolved. 2nd disk causes boot to fail However, in the course of fixing this, one of the things I tried (per another thread on here) was to give my user increased permissions. I have no idea what I did.

You need to run SFC in an elevated command prompt. Right click on command prompt and clcik on Run as administrator. Then type in your SFC /SCANNOW command and hit enter.

I remember your setup from previous case with M acting as System Active even when not marked as same, remedied by wiping M with Diskpart: 2nd disk causes boot to fail

Confirm you ran Clean All command on M.

There may be further anomaly with M. Try trading cables on DISK0 and 1. Set Win7 HD as first to boot in BIOS setup.

Have you tried to change the "volume shadow copy" settings? I had to do this to fix the same issue and other WIn 7 backup failures. One time it was failing because it didn't like some file names (too long). This just goes to show you how quirky this utility is.

Go to the windows start menu and type in "services" in the search box. In services right click on "Volume shadow copy" and select "properties". In the properties dialog box make sure "startup type" is set to "manual". See if that helps....
