Windows 7: Back up failed to complete

27 May 2012   #21

Windows7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1

I just started the update tool to see what would happen. It completed a full back up in around 25 minutes. I am not sure if this is a good amount of time to do this, but it has done it none the less.. My next job is to go through the files on the 2TB external drive and delete duplicates. Anyone know of a good program for this task?
Greg, I am still puzzled by your reference to Sony. Where did this appear and what happened to it. I also noted that at least one post had been removed. What was that deleted for? Thanks for the help.
Regards, James.
