Windows 7: Next backup date shows as 12/30/1899 12:00 AM

Windows 7 Premium 64 Bit

The SSD is 128 gig and has 93 gig free.
The backup Drive is a IDE internal WD Blue 320 Gig with 142 gig free.

I tryed a system recovery and selected to exclude the Backup Drive but format the SSD. It failed.

I then just selected it to restore the SSD without checking the format box and it worked.

I have had issues with Windows Backup ever since installing this SSD. Before with a Raptor it always worked fine.

Thanks for the info. I also copy my files everyday so no data was lost.

But I do tweak out Windows so that is where I can lose all my settings.

You might consider using Macrium Reflect Free to see how it may work for you as a backup option instead since you are having a rough time with Windows Backup.

Windows 7 Premium 64 Bit

Thank You.

I think it has something to do with the SSD and the Windows 7, 2 partitions.
I was just hoping to not have to install another program on this old build.

Thanks Again

Windows 7 64 bit


I did a lot of work to fix the 30.12.1899 issue in Windows Backup and restore, and could not find any help. Finally I disabled the Internet Time Synchronization, and the correct Backup schedule stayed there!
So, Iīll wait the fix but have no pain because the scheduled Backup and restore is working, I only have to set the correct time manually, think 2 - 3 times per year.

Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit

For anyone else that comes across this thread this is something that had bothered me for a long time. I've had this issue off and on since I started using Windows 7. Finally, I just started playing with the task settings (which can be found by searching for tasks in the start menu, then navigating Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows > WindowsBackup).

I would just try a setting at a time and then check to see if the date in the backup settings reset to 12/30/1899. What finally worked for me was changing the "Configure for" setting on the General tab of the task to "Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2". By default "Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008" is selected when Windows Backup creates the task. Once I changed it, I haven't had a problem with the date changing since.
