Problem with complete pc backup- error 0x8007007A RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I've been trying to do a complete PC backup using the utility in Vista Ultimate. The backup utility will not recognize any external hard drives I connect. I've tried two- one of which has been fully encrypted and mounted in TrueCrypt (reading and writing from both drives works fine). I'd like to back up to the encrypted one, but I keep getting a "data area passed to a system call is too small" and after clicking OK it tells me that no hard disks or drives could be found. When I try going to just back up files, I can see USB thumb drives and another partition on my primary hard disk. However, none of the externals show up.

    Is there anyway to fix this issue, or should I look to some other type of backup software?
