what is the name of your computer in system properties does it have @ in it

do you get any errors in the event viewer tagged in red that may help to pin point

The name of my computer is just 10 char. long and no special chars. except for 2 capital letters.

Here are a couple of recent errors from event viewer:
1) The server {37734C4D-FFA8-4139-9AAC-60FBE55BF3DF} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.
2) The Block Level Backup Engine Service service terminated with the following error:
%%-2147024713

(I had just brought up Backup and Restore and clicked on manage space to get an error just prior to this)

Ar these meaningful? If not, tell me more specifically where to look in event manager.
Thanks for your help!!!

Yes, these were red.
The event id for the first one was 10010 and the 2nd one 7023
Thank you!

Forgot to mention that when I click on Backup and Restore, everything looks normal and my F: USB drive is listed.
Although, it says Backup Size: Not Available
When I click on Manage Space, I can feel my F: drive is being read for a while, then about 60 seconds later the error
message pops up.

It just did a backup successfully to my F: drive. It even stated "copying files to F:" when I clicked on View Details.
So I don't get it.

I guess the size was just unavailable while it was doing the backup.
This is what it looks like now:



Thanks!

you might run a check disk on that drive to make sure there is no weirdness

also you could try to rename the F drive itself if the name of that drive was associated with some other weird issue like you had before Windows maybe hung up on that so with renaming unplug it and reconnect it resetup your back up location to F new drive name and see what happens

I'll give it a try.
Thanks

I ran a checkdisk on C: Then I renamed F: - Fantom to Fantasia and shut the PC down and disconnected it. I restarted it, plugged F: back in, reset the backup via Reset_Back_Up_Files registry entry and I still got the error when I attempted to click Setup Backup.



All clean.
When I clicked on Setup Backup.



And yet, when I click on Select another backup to restore files from it shows me the ones that are on the F: drive!

1. Navigate to the following entry.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsBackup\Status

2. Right click WindowsBackup in the left pane, and click "Export", under Export, and select "Desktop" in the Save in box and type "backup" as the File Name. Click "Save".

Note: If any unexpected issue happens, we can restore the registry key simply by double-clicking the backup.reg file. Once we have completed the troubleshooting and the issue has been resolved we can delete this file.

3. Right click the Status entry in the left pane, and choose delete, and click yes to confirm.
4. Restart your computer and test again.

I do not have a status entry:
I have WindowsBackup and within that I have
1) AutomaticFullbackup
2) OtherParams
3) SystemImageBackup

I have the WindowsBackup registry entry saved on my desktop.
But, not sure what to do since I do not have a Status entry.
Thanks!!!
