Backup Vista to external hard drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using Vista Home edition; trying to use backup app for the first time.  Using external hard drive as destination. 

    1.  App does not allow me to create a folder for the backups; why?

    2.  App returns a fail notice stating that the backup target drive has a corrupted file system

    3.  I use this external hard drive alot and have had no other issues with it.

    4.  How do I fix this backup failure issue?  I have previous backups from my XP laptop on the destination; would that be the problem?  Thanks.
