Backup Failed


I have three external drives, that were backed up each night on a vista machine by whs. I purchased a new machine, with win 7, and moved the drives to the new machine. I then installed the connector for whs, and configured the back up. Each night the back up backs up the hard drive on the new machine, but fails on the external drives. I moved them back to the old machine and they back up fine. When i move them back to the win7 machine, the internal harddrive backs up, but the external drives will not anymore. Does whs put a file to connect the drives to certain machine or something? How do i get the drives to back up some the new machine?

I also moved an internal drive from the old machine to and it does the same thing.

Backup Failed, Backup Drive No Longer Detected

Windows 7 kept bugging me about creating a backup, so i finally decided to. I chose to backup the default items onto my d: drive. I let it run, left for a bit and came back. It failed at 70ish%. Tried again. Same thing. I didn't have a whole lot of time left so i decided to just forget it.

I deleted the incomplete backup files on my d: drive (there was a c: backup file and mediaid. Bin) since there seemed to be no use for incomplete backup files.

When i got home and turned on my computer, post took longer than usual. My sata 2 drive was undetected. Sata 2 = my d drive. When windows starts to boot, it freezes when the windows animation is doing it's thing. I tried repairing and restoring from previously known good configuration and still nothing. I used my win7 disk to check for problems, and i even used that to restore to a point prior to my failed backups.

What else could i try? Why would my d: drive suddenly be undetected in bios, and why would a failed backup cause my windows installation to freeze? Edit: i unplugged the data cable from my d: drive and now windows boots. So deleting backup files royally screwed up my d: drive?

Recover D Drive Backup Failed

I keep getting a message telling that my recovery d drive backup failed because my d drive is almost full. When i click to do a disk cleanup i the cleanup screen which only offers to let me delete files from the recycle bin. However the recycle bin always says there ar 0 bytes in it. I need to know what files should be in the recover d drive and which i can safely delete. Is it ok to just delete everything in the file and then do a system restore? I don't recall backing up files to the recovery d drive other than doing a system restore and when i try to check to see what files are there i dont recognize what they are. My computer is a dell insperion 530

Dell Datasafe Local Backup Vs Windows Backup

I recently purchased a dell desktop with windows 7. One of the first things i did was configure all of my back-upsettings / schedule in windows. I used the recommended windows default settings in regards to what data is being backed up and set my back-up location to an attached external wd drive. All seems to be working fine. That said this machine also has dell factory installed back up software (dell datasafe local back-up) that does it's thing and backs up data to a partition on the "c" drive. My question is if i've set up windows to back up my data to an external drive do i even need the dell datasafe local back up program at all? The concern is this program is using space on my c drive and if the c drive were to crash having the back up info on it seems kind of pointless to me anyway.

Failed Automatic Update

I tried to update the latest microsoft updates last thursday and after 4 hours the system froze, so i canceled job and went to sign off and got the usual message "updates being applied" and 12 hours later it was still on 1 of 14, so i powered off. I then went back in and found that all updates had failed. I can not find a way to try and reinstall the updates, and when ever i try to sign off it says "installing updates 1- xxx and just stays like that for hours. Had lunch with a friend yesterday, who told me she had same problem as well as another friend that she spoke to. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Windows Failed To Start

I have successfully installed windows ultimate 7. I think. I hesitate to say successfully because when i restart or shutdown and restart, more than half the time on reboot, the system i am installing windows 7 to resets and then comes to a "windows failed to start" screen.

At that point, if i choose to "start normally" it will - most of the time - start. On occasion, it will reset again, come to the "windows failed to start" screen again, i will chose "start normally" and it will this time boot. I thought at first it was a driver issue but i tried the install without the drivers and have the same issue. I have tried different keyboards, mice, etc. None of that helps. I have tried going into msconfig and unchecking "use original boot configuration". I read that this had worked in another forum with a similar problem. It was worth a try.

Logon Service Failed

I have installed windows 7 3 times now and just had to do a system rollback today due to various errors within windows 7. Both home premium, starter and ultimate have all failed at some point. The latest problem appears that 6 ms updates went in (publish date 13th april) and upon reboot, and logging in it says the login service failed to start and then throws you back to the login screen. I had to start up in safe mode, log in and then rollback. I'm getting very frustrated now as the system won't remain stable for more than 1. 5 months before something happens.

Raid Configuration Failed

Raid configuration (which is something that is recommended by microsoft) failed>>>> be carefeul - they hung up the phone on him b/c it was after business hours.

We had a redundant hard drive on my husbands computer so we could make sure we didn't loose any files on our computers. Well, within our home network we could not see each others computers which happened just recently and so we decided to do a system restore. My computer has windows 7 and my husbands does too. My system restore performed flawlessly . My husbands. Not so much - he cant even boot his computer let alone get to safe mode. We had been on the phone with microsoft for 3 hours, and i guess they wanted to send us to a different department - well they hung up on him and closed! I personally work for a customer service department and we try our hardest to get things done for our customers.

If there is a problem where we know we cannot fix before our "shift" is over, we make sure we transfer the situation to someone like a manager/expert to make sure the customer gets taken care of. Thats what customer service is all about. I am severely disappointed. By the way, the system restore erased both hard drives in the computer and now we have none of our files or programs.

Server Login Failed

I have a server running on windows server 2003, all the other 5 computers are able to map the drive in the server and login with the credientials i have. The problem: i just goit a new computer, custom built, i installed a fresh copy of windows 7 everything works fine, the internet is working, i see all the computers in the network and i also see both servers in the same work-group. I can go in the server and connect to the new computer using the correct login. However, when i try to map a drive on the server, it asks for a login username and password. I type in the right info a million times, and it says login failed, unknown user or wrong password.

But all the other computers connect to the server with the same login. I cannot login the server at all, both servers. Every time i type in the login info, it just says that the login failed and it gives me a refresh ( so i can retype) and if i keep pressing enter with the "wrong password" it does not lock me out or anything, it seems like i'm not even connecting or anything. I am pretty knowledgeable with computer, this has never happened, i have tried everything, this is not something common.

     Windows backup encountered and error when accessing the remote shared folder. (0x8078015b)

     Additional information:

A backup without the system image works fine.

Win 7 Failed To Boot

Windows 7 not running. Error, system doctor needs to remove file associated with microsoft office live add-in but windows will not delete file. Need help!First off, this is not about my computer, its about a friends computer, so i might not be able to provide all the information. My friend ran has mcafee antivirus on here asus laptop. She ran an update for it along with a microsoft office update. She restarted her computer and when it loaded, an error occurred and the os (windows 7) failed to load. Well, after shutting down and trying again, the ?Pc doctor?

(Unsure on exact name) searched and found the file that was causing the problem. It was a microsoft office live add-in. The program said in needed to be deleted, so she tried to delete it, but it said that the drive was protected? I am unsure what to do, but she needs her computer for her job, so if there is a non-complex way to solve the problem, i would be extremely appreciative.

Failed To Load Operating System

Windows 7 wont start, sometimes as if it's not there anymore, my cpu is an intel i7 860 with gpu nvidia gtx275 and 4gb of ram. It's pretty new and not even a year old yet. Overall it's not a bad computer. Anyway, like a week ago it started lagging some, then it got worse after a few days. The hdd light is always showing and i can hear the computer working hard as if i'm running many programs at once. But my from my task manager , i can see that the cpu speed is like lower than 5% and the ram like 30% which is normal. Sometimes the lag is gone and sometimes it's back.

When it happens, even when when i watch videos, the videos lag. Then later, my computer start restarts on its own. On one of the restart, after post , the desktop computer runschkdsk or something like that, that scans the c: drive for errors , i think, and i let it do that. And i can still go into the computer after. But it just goes downhill. The restarts became more often and the 'starting windows ' screen at start became longer and longer. After another restart, there was 2 options 'launch system recovery tools ' and 'start windows normally ' i cant remember if thats exactly what they are called.

I run system recovery tools and restart after that and i can still come back into the computer. I run myavast! Anti-virus program to check for virus but there isn't any. I have also tried to usesystem restore but there isn't any restore points created, which is unusual because there was always some restore points. After yet another restart later, i couldn't get back into the computer anymore. After post , at the screen of 'loading operating system . ', instead of going to 'starting windows ', it say something like 'failed to load operating system, insert the cd into cd/dvd drive '.

Sorry, i am not very good at recalling stuff. But i do not have the cd, windows 7 was installed in the pc before i bought it. So i reset the computer and it came up with 'windows error recovery ' and i have the 2 options 'launch system recovery tools ' and 'start windows normally ' like before, but this time after i use the first option, it just stops at a blank screen and nothing else.

I reset the computer again and i chose the second opting and it does nothing again (just stops at the blank screen). I keep trying to turn off and restart my computer several times now. After that, it will came up with one of these every time now : 1) insert cd 2) windows error recovery 3) it will go on to 'starting windows ' but blank screen after that.

Mtp Usb Device Failed

This error occurs when i try to install my canon rebel, nikon cool pix cameras and my ipod w/camera. I have done much research and see it's a common problem. It's happened on cameras, i-phones, occasionally mp3's of all brands. It's also happened on many brands of computers. There is only 1 common thread - windows. I use windows 7 and need to use my camera now! I've paid a lot of people to help and no one can find the answer. I know i'm not alone. I've tried all usb ports. I've tried uninstalling devices. I get a mtp device w/yellow caution sign in universal serial bus drivers.

Ram Failed After Upgrade To Win7

Ram upgrade problems, i have a 32-bit computer running windows 7 and i used to run windows vista with a 2 gb ram and it worked fine. However, once i installed windows 7, i was forced to remove one gb of ram to complete the installation and so i did. But then later i put the gb of ram back in and booted up my computer only to be greeted by a blank black screen. I removed that gb and rebooted my computer and it worked just fine. Anybody know how to fix this problem? It's really annoying running on only 1 gb of ram for it is very slow.

User Profile Failed To Load

I just added another user profile to my windows 7 pro machine and upon restarting the machine, i find i am locked out, entirely. The error message is: the user profile service failed the logon. The profile cannot be loaded. This happens for both users. Is there a way to recover the old user profile and bag this new one?

I read the post from tina r, back from 2009, but your solution is based on gaining access to the operating system. I have tried starting in safe mode, but the regedit files, in w7, do not clearly indicate which files are the older, bak, files.

Avshowtime

I just relaunched the machine again in safe mode and it did allow me to log in. Can i restore my old profile from here?

Kb980408 Update Install Failed

Installed win7 pro on my hp desktop two days ago. Installed about 30 updates without issue but am getting hung up on one of them.

Kb980408 keeps failing. The error i get is: "windowsupdate_800b0100" "windowsupdate_dt000"

I downloaded the update and attempted a manual installation but that did not work either. I tried microsoft fixit and it did not resolve the issue even with aggressive mode. I've tried running the system update readiness tool but that didn't work for me. I've pasted the log at the end of this message if it's of any use.

The only antivirus i am running is microsoft security essentials.
