backup fails after 20%... RRS feed

  •  

    When trying to backup my Windows XP Home laptop (fixed IP address, wireless) it fails when reaching 20%, no error message, it just stops and the status "Not Backed up" is given. Any ideas what can be done to fix this?

  • Can you try to run chkdsk on the machine? From a command prompt run "chkdsk c: /f /r" and see if there are any errors on the drive that may need to be fixed.

  • I would suggest installing Diskeeper. It is a great product to defragment your system and keep these types of problems from reoccuring.
