Try restarting your pc... Once you log back in, start the back up immediately and see if that works.

Dear filups21,

Did you get a solution for the backup problem? I have the Samsung S2 also, and the same problem...

Many thanks

nope - never got a solution. Samsung's auto backup software doesn't work for me, either. I have to drag and drop to back things up, which takes a long time every time I want to back things up. It sucks, but I haven't had other problems with Windows 7.
