Backup & Restore

I've just created an image of the system and also a repair disk. The Backup & Restore window points to an incorrect drive (one of the card readers) but I can't change the source as the links won't respond. I attach a screenshot.

Thanks fishnbanjo, (or may I call you "fish"?), my problem is that the change settings link doesn't work.

well looking at google, it seems that this backup feature is not performant at all.
I, like many others, am unable to backup without an error.
MSoft talk about an reparse point issue, but nobody explain what it is and how to avoid it.
