Automatic File backup failing on Windows Vista Business edition on external drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I’m having a problem with Automatic Backups in Windows Vista Business Edition.


    The backup fails every night at the scheduled time (10pm) with the error “The backup location could not be found or is not valid.  Review your backup settings or and check your hardware configuration(0x81000006)”.  

    However, I am manually able to backup to the external hard drive (USB) using the Vista Backup program.  Also, I temporarily changed the automatic scheduled time to verify that would work when I was logged onto the machine and it did.

    I checked the power options and the computer does not turn off at night.   I also turned off Hybrid Sleep.

    Any ideas on how to resolve?
