backup causes system to restart RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Windows XP SP2 on my system. I am trying to store my backup to the following hard drive: I have a Buffalo link station pro (NAS), 500GB, plenty of space free.. It is connected to  a linksys router. When I start BAckup it runs for a short time (less then a minute) and then my system restarts. Any suggestions anyone? thanks

  • The best I can offer is to contact support. I don't think that the destination drive is the issue in your case, but you might see if you can make it succeed by reconfiguring backup to use an external drive directly connected to the PC or even CD/DVD. If it still causes the crash, then I suspect a conflict with another program on your PC with the backup component of OneCare.
