I just tried to make a system image backup of my hard drive using the file history interface in Windows 8.1

I received the following two errors.


1. Windows backup failed to create the shared protection point on the source volumes.(0x8078006B)

2. The specified object was not found (0x80042308)


Can someone please help me find a fix for this issue.  I am thinking that my hard drive is starting to experience some I/O issues.

Have you looked in Disk Management to make sure the partition you are using is active?


Press the Windows key startorb_zpsvudtmgfg.png and the X key together.
In the menu which opens click/tap on Disk Management.
Right click on the primary partition which you want to active, then click/tap on Mark Partition as Active.
