Attempting to backup my HP laptop to my new Seagate Expansion 3TB plug and play external drive returns the error shown in the screenshot below.
After searching Google for a solution it seems the backup utility in Windows 7 is not compatible with high capacity drives over 2.5TB. Am I understanding this correctly? How am I going to backup my laptop onto this drive?
I did come across a proposed solution here
but apparently this would prevent the drive from working with Windows XP. As I need to move file between the laptop and an XP machine this is not an option for me.
There is approximately 126GB of data on the machine and the drive is brand new, formatted to NTFS and otherwise empty.
Perhaps I need to use a third party software to backup? Please advise.
