BSOD when R-Drive Image is executed on Sundays (but not the other days)

I use R-Drive Image for full system backups. This is supposed to be on a fortnightly (every 2 weeks) basis: a full backup every other Sunday, and incremental backups the 13 days in between - these are scheduled tasks in Windows. It all worked fine ... until I put in the Creators' Update in Windows 10. I strongly suspect there is a bug in Creators' Update with respect to scheduled tasks that repeat once every multiple weeks. Though I clearly have separate tasks defined for the full backup and the incremental backup on the "other" Sunday - with different start dates - I'm fearing the two tasks are interfering with each other; I suspect Windows is disregarding the "every 2 weeks" parameter and trying to execute both tasks at the same time. For both the Sunday full and Sunday incremental backups, I have them scheduled to run at 2:30 am ... which is exactly when the BSOD's occur. This has been happening every Sunday since Creators' Update was installed.

​I suppose as a "quick" fix I could have the Sunday incremental backup run at a different time than the Sunday full ... but what if when the one's running, Windows tries to execute the other? There's another scheduled task that is supposed to be run only every 2 weeks: just before the Sunday full backup, I have a batch file executed which clears the backup drive out. But since Creators Update, it's been running every week, and I've checked the details of the scheduled task (including its registry entry), and it says what I want it to, every 2 weeks. So, in short, this Scheduled Task bug seems to be directly related to my BSOD's. I'll be curious to see if your analysis of the attached ZIP file confirms this.

 

My Speccy: http://speccy.piriform.com/results/saKlIwFDy4w0yt6cJHOza1w

 

You will see in the Speccy page, under "Scheduler", these entries among the others:

10/08/2017 02:29;: Clear Backup Drive
10/08/2017 02:30;: R-Drive Image - Full (Fortnightly)
10/15/2017 02:30;: R-Drive Image - Sunday Incremental
 
... which is exactly as it's supposed to be. The system crashed even before anything got written to the Event Log this morning, but the backup drive got cleared this morning at 2:29 when that wasn't supposed to happen until next Sunday, and I know from the Event Log that the system has tried to execute both Sunday backup tasks at the same time before.

I know nothing about R-Drive, but do think that 2 separate processes trying to backup the same files (even those that are in use) is asking for problems.
I would change the Fortnightly backup to Saturday night - that way you'd be able to see a problem before the Sunday backup.

Beyond that, for more expert advice about Backup problems, please post over in the Backup forums:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/238/backup-imaging-and-disk-management-software/

 

As for the Scheduled Task bug - have you tried removing that task and scheduling a new one?  If so, does that exhibit the same unwanted behavior?

 

On with the analysis of the BSOD....................

 

First off, the lone memory dump blames the kernel (core of the OS).  If it was actually at fault, you'd see many more problems other than the occasional BSOD.  Most often this is a sign of a 3rd party (non-Windows) driver causing the kernel to crash. 

 

You may want to run Driver Verifier according to these instructions (before doing all the stuff above):  http://www.carrona.org/verifier.html

The point here would be to try and identify the offending drivers this way - which may (in the short term) reduce the amount of time spent fixing the system.

I say short term because the large number of older drivers on the system are (IMO) just waiting for another problem to take advantage of.
The long term solution (again IMO) would be a wipe and reinstall of W10 - then only install the programs that you need, ensuring that each one is W10 compatible BEFORE installing it.

 

There's only 1 memory dump in the uploaded reports.  If using a disk cleaner (such as CCleaner), please stop while we're troubleshooting this issue.

If you haven't cleaned them out, then there's a problem with the system capturing them.

 

Your UEFI/BIOS (version 1608) dates from 2014.  Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system.  If you are able to install the update through Windows (without booting from an external drive), then go ahead and update it.  WARNING - if the computer might shut down during this procedure, please don't do it, as this may physically damage the computer and prevent it from booting.
FYI - W8 and W10 communicate more with the UEFI/BIOS than previous versions of Windows, so it's important to ensure that the UEFI/BIOS is kept up to date (and the outdated UEFI/BIOS' may be the cause of some compatibility issues).

Although you appear to have a reasonable number of Windows Update hotfixes for this version of your OS, please double check for any new Windows Updates.  It only takes one update to cause a problem, so it's essential that you have all of them.  The actual number is not important.  Rather it's important that you checked manually, installed any available updates, and didn't experience any errors when checking or updating.

You have at least 4 hard drives.  What is the make/model/wattage and age of your Power Supply?
The purpose of this question is to get you to evaluate your PSU.
- PSU's tend to get less efficient with age
- adding components over time may decrease the ability of the PSU to support the entire system (Maybe remove some stuff to see if that helps?)
- while you can measure the output of a PSU with a multimeter, the readings may change dramatically when the PSU is put under load.  PSU testing instructions (by dc3) here:  https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/654994/pc-is-crashingfreezing-up-multiple-times-daily/page-2#entry4341756
- there's a free PSU test in the OCCT program at http://www.ocbase.com/

The WER section of the MSINFO32 report shows 13 BSOD's from Jul 30 (2 ea), Aug 06 (2 ea), Sep 3 (2 ea), Sep 10 (3 ea), Sep 17 (2 ea), Oct 01 (2 ea)
Unfortunately there's not much information about the BSOD's in that section of the report (they are mostly STOP 0x133 and 0x139 errors AFAIK).

 

I would suggest uninstalling your NEC Display Solutions software as it's driver (NDSPCIIO64.SYS) dates from 2005 and is likely not compatible w/W10

 

The same thing goes for your 56k modem.  It's drivers date from 2006 and 2009 and are likely not compatible w/W10

In addition, I would suggest physically removing the 56k modem from your system.  If the modem isn't removeable, then disable it in the BIOS.  If you can't disable it in the BIOS, then disable it in Device Manager (I hope that works, as the system will want to load it at boot).

 

It appears that this version of the R-Tools program may also have issues with W10 compatibility.

The DrvSnSht64.sys driver dates from 2010 - well before W10 was released.

As you're currently having issues with this, it may be prudent to ask for advice in the R-Tools support channels.

 

You also have many other older drivers installed on this system.  It may be wise to consider a format and reinstall to start out with all W10 compatible software.

Please update these older drivers.  Links are provided in order to assist you with looking up the source of the drivers.  
If unable to find an update, please uninstall the program that is responsible for that driver.  

DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable!!!:

A number of things to follow up on. Some things quickly: I'll delete and re-create the scheduled tasks in question as you suggest. The BIOS is the latest for this board available. Previous dumps I did have CCleaner delete; I note your advice about that, as also about a manual check of Windows updates. You mention some drivers I didn't realize I had - probably carryovers as you said, so I'll need to figure out if there's any programs I have now that are still using them; thank you for the links to these drivers. I'll have to see if there are programs that will send faxes without the use of a modem. PSU is 530 W, installed December 2009; I'll run one of the tests you mention. I note the recommendation for a clean Windows 10 reinstall; the system I have was upgraded from Windows 8.1. Thank you for your time!

From an elevated Command Prompt, run "slmgr /xpr"

If it comes back saying permanently activated, then your copy of Windows 10 is legitimate and can be reinstalled on the same hardware without any problems.

You can get a clean copy of the W10 software (and the Media Creation Tool) from here:  https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10
It'll automagically reactivate after installation when you connect to the internet.
