Hi

I am using Windows Vista Home Basic.

I have been trying to carry out a Backup but get the following error message when the programme has finished running

0x81000005 with the following message.

The Backup did not complete successfully
An error occurred. The following information might help you resolve the error.
There is not enough space to save the back up files. Free up disk space or change your
backup settings. (0x81000005)


Backing up to a removable disk in (K:) which is a Maxell Executive 8GB Pen Drive which shows at the point of backup, used space 4.00KB and Free Space 7.40GB.

Trying to Backup Factory -Image (D:) Total size 6.7GB - Used Space 6.1.GB

I have previously successfully backed up D: onto this pen drive . Any help and advice would be appreciated.

Windows backup, more, or less, sucks.

Try one of these:

Acronis True Image: http://www.acronis.com/ - not free, but the best

Free alternatives:
- Macrium Reflect: http://www.macrium.com/ReflectFree.asp (highly recommended)
- DriveImage XML: http://www.runtime.o...veimage-xml.htm
- SelfImage: http://www.excelcia....N...icle&sid=21
- Paragon Drive Backup: http://www.paragon-s...ome/db-express/
