trying to back up my windows 10, i am getting a message that says "The last back did not complete successfully"

 

My C drive is a 250GB SSD drive. By back drive is an external 2 TB drive

Back up drive shows 236.9 GB free of 1.82TB

 

Any suggestions on the back up failure?

 

Why is bay back up so big with my c drive is 250GB? 

All my documents, photos videos, etc reside on a seperate drive.

While I like and use Macrium Reflect, and even if your C: drive is not even close to full, you're cutting it mighty close to try to back up a 250 GB (partially filled) drive on an external drive with only 237 GB remaining space regardless of what you're using.   A bit of breathing room is usually needed for files used during the process that get nuked at the end of it.

I like & use Macrium Reflect v7.

I got it at a discount. :)

I would suggest getting an external hard drive (USB 3.0) & storing any video files or other large files on it to conserve space on the C: drive.

I got an external hard drive (1 TB) cheap.

I had to add USB 3.0 ports first. (Cheaply)

I have an old computer that only came with USB 2.0 ports.

It's not very hard to upgrade your USB ports.

Something to consider. :)
