I've been trying to use Vista's backup utility for my files.
I've been successful with a total image backup of my C drive partition with Vista. I've also backed up "My Music" and "My Media" partitions (totaling 12 GB) with the "Volume Shadow Copy" - Vista's file backup utility.
But "Volume Shadow Copy" will not backup a third partition titled "APPL & DOC" - keeping all "My Documents", downloaded and purchased application ".exe" files and some Torrent downloads (totaling 34 GB). On trying to backup this partition I keep getting the error: "0x80042306" no matter where I try to back it up. CHKDSK didn't help either.
I've done a search on this error but the results only bring up solutions for "Servers" having this error. My PC is just a Home-Office PC and not a server. The suggestions don't seem relevant plus the fact that "Command Prompt" brings up that I need Administrative Privileges to do the recommendations doesn't help.
Any suggestions on how to remedy this would be greatly appreciated.
