  • Hi ThandoGirl,

    First could you verify that system State backup works on your local server :

    Open command prompt with admin privileges and type :

    wbadmin.exe start systemstatebackup -backuptarget:C:

  • Hi,

    Do you have enough free hard disk space? Windows backup require enough free hard disk size and it is depend on the size of the files you backup. 

    Try free out the space or try backup to another volume. Let us know the outcome
