make sure these services are running and set to start automatic:

1. Volume Shadow Copy
2. Virtual Disk

also I would run a check disk on your C drive itself

also you can try going to the Windows backup service log on tab and change from local system account to your user account and try that

First one was running, the 2nd one I started and set to auto.

I did that yesterday and it took about 3 hours (give or take)!
Do I need to do it again?

I was not able to do that because it said I would have to do a whole bunch of other stuff
(this was after I stopped the service and started it back up).

I would rather SYSTEM performed this operation anyway.
And it is still broke! But, I do appreciate your "never give up" approach.
Thank you!!!

So I guess there is no fix for this problem is there?

Thanks for all of your efforts!

I don't know if this will help, but every day at 12:00 PM the PC tries to do a backup as it was scheduled before and I found this error in Component Services:
The backup was not successful. The error is: Your backup configuration is not valid. Review your backup settings. (0x81000029).

ok here you go sounds like the recovery partition is marked active you need to change that

You may receive error messages when you try to perform a backup operation on a Windows Vista-based computer

Thanks, but I have already been there and my C: drive is the active partition.
When I click on C: and right click on it the "mark as active" is grayed out. Isn't that
what that means? Also, I think the "C:" disappeared a few days ago from Properties
(Click on Computer, right click on C: and go to properties) where the C: is was blank.
I just re-entered "C:" there and OK.

Would it be a good idea to follow the bottom of that page and do a repair install?
It says to do it w/o rebooting. Will this mess anything up?

Thanks for your prompt attention!

I have a Windows 7 repair disk. Will that work?

Thanks!

Here it is:



The 2nd 2 partitions are Ubuntu and none of them have the option to make active -
they are grayed out on all of them. But, as you can see the first one is active.

Thanks!
