XP Professional Backup Utility Freeze RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been using XP Backup Utility for regular backups for several years.  The other day, I started Backup and the system froze at the Starting Shadow Copy popup.  It now freezes every time I attempt to do a Backup.  I have tried to backup all files on C:, a single file on C:, and changed the Backup destination drive but nothing has worked.

    Does anyone know what the problem is and/or how to fix it?

    Thanks.

  • Hi martylaz2, after checking the issue, it seems this is a general Windows XP related issue. As this forum focuses on Windows SteadyState specific issues, this inquiry would best be posted to Windows XP  forum:

  • I would run a check disk with "Automatically Fix File System Errors" and "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors".
