Assuming you are using Windows Imaging and file/folder backup:
1) Volume Shadow Copy
2) Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider
Should be set to manual as per MS advice.
a check for drive errors should be carried out
Disk Check
Seagate SeaTools will allow you to also run some quick diagnostics on D:. Since it is 1TB a full scan will take some hours.

Also try just making an image using "Create a System Image" button.
