Windows 7: Windows backup freezes at 25% no matter what i do?

Windows backup freezes at 25% no matter what i do?

I'm just backing up my user files onto My E: drive. Some libraries point to the D: drive (Music, pictures, videos), but I'm not backing up my movies library.

I have changes some of the settings (such as not backing up certain other files on my D: drive and skipping my movie library), but it still always stops at 25%. Help?

I have 117 GB on HD. I try to backup on an external 160GB HD. External I believe is formatted correctly with share permissions. I also tried without copying the system image. I sometimes get as far as 61% before it freezes forcing me to hardboot. Thanks, Max
