vista complete PC backup

Discussion in 'Tablet PC' started by Steven Wabik, Aug 8, 2008.

    I have a few questions about vista complete PC backup. one is about how to
    fix an issue with it and the other question is about how it works.


    Question #1:
    -------------
    well, recently I have been having an issue with vista complete PC backup. it
    did a complete PC backup once. then I installed a bunch of applications,
    installed a few hardware devices to the computer, and synced a Bluetooth
    device or two to my computer.

    after making all of these changes to my computer I want to make a new a new
    complete PC backup but I get this issue when I try. the issue looks like
    this:

    -------------
    The backup application could not start due to an internal error:

    Server execution failed (0x080080005)

    Please check your system configuration and try again.
    -------------

    Does anyone know what this error message mean? and do you know how to fix
    the problem so that I will be able to use vista complete PC backup again?


    --------------
    --------------


    Question #2
    ------------
    for Vista complete PC backup, does it only backup the vista partition or
    will it backup other partitions for if I decide to do a dual boot or if I am
    using bit-licker drive encryption?


    From,

    Why don't you just have a look at Acronis True Image?

    I'd also suggest Shadow Protect Desktop. I got fed up with True Image
    problems in verifying images.

    so far I have gotten a few responses to this damn issue I am having. so far
    they are all work arounds. not with any solutions or what this error code
    actually means. so, can someone please figure it out for me.

    if i can't get vista complete PC backup to work, i will just use Acronis
    True Image to do a image of my pc. My OEM supplied it with my computer when
    i purchased it. of course then, my pc also came with Windows XP. then I also
    got a free upgrade to vista.

    and the odd thing is that I still have DOS utilities that I use to do image
    backups of my computers hard drive. its just to bad that they do not work
    with windows vista.

    As your problems have nothing to do with the special issues of a
    *TabletPC* and are just *Vista* issue, I highly recommend to ask in a
    Vista NG, probably vista.general.

    Why do you direct this to poor *ME*?

  11. Seems neither of you knows how to read a header. The post was to TabletPC,
    Installation_Setup AND to Vista.General.

    Why the excessive cross-posting, I don't know, but you guys are both acting
    so goofy I couldn't let it pass.

    I don't have unlimited time here to read that, as well as ALL the post!
