Windows 7: Backup & Restore, Missing Service?

Backup & Restore, Missing Service?

When I try to run Windows back up (not system restore) I get error 0x80070422. The error message reads something like “This service can not be started because it is either disabled or it has no enabled devices associated with it.” I looked around and found a list of services associated with Backup & Restore and their startup settings (manual/Automatic Etc.) I went through the list and everything is correct EXCEPT “Windows Backup” - “Manual” (manual is the setting not part of the name). There is no service with that name. All the other 5 are there and set correctly. What the heck can I do about a missing service? I really don’t need this grief <grin>.
Any comments or suggestions welcome.

Hello Dusty, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can use the tutorial below to restore the missing Windows Backup service to hopefully help afterwards.
Services - Restore Default Services in Windows 7
These are the services you need, and what they need to be set to:
  • Volume Shadow Copy (VSS) - "Manual"
  • Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider (SWPRV) - "Manual"
  • Remote Procedure Call (RPCSS) - "Automatic"
  • COM+ Event System (eventsystem) - "Manual" & "Automatic"
  • System Event Notification Service (sens) - "Automatic"
  • Windows Backup (SDRSVC) – “Manual”
