The writer experienced a transient error. If the backup process is retried, the error may not reoccur. (0x800423F3)


  • HI everyone

    I have always been able to run backs ups - they have run daily for about the 6 months that I have had the machine.

    About 2 weeks ago they started to fail ( 14th Feb) - with the error message above.
    Rebooted - retried - system restore failed as well

    I looked at the external hard drive and it was full. I deleted some stuff - no good.

    Did the services bit - switching on and off the volume master shadowing bit - it made no difference. That is on delayed start but I have tried it on Manual and Auto

    Formatted external hard drive so that it should have seemed to be a new drive - no good.

    I have just read the list of possible answers - it has 4GB RAM so that is not it

    The disk is recognised - seems fine - it tells me that FreeAgent Drive is drive G and I can see it - though it is pretty empty

    I have rebooted several times

    IT is a Phillips desktop -
    Running Wiindows Vista service pack 1 Home

    From the problems and solutions log I read:
