Hi Melina2,

Please provide the following details:

Is it happening in the middle of the process of backing up the data?
Could you please check the error message again?
Are you using a third party application to backup the data?

Also, please try a different USB port.

Thanks & Regards

Hi Manshu S
The backup works on every other PC. It is a work one so can't answer check message again till Monday.
It starts to backup but in seconds says backup failed
There are no other ports on this machine. I have cleaned it and used other devices on it.
Not sure whether it uses third party application, think its generic to windows.
Sorry I can't be more help
22/7
Approx 21/2 mins into backup. It just stops and message is as follows

The latest backup set could not be found. Make sure it is accessible and has not been deleted. Otherwise create a full new backup (Ox8100000A)
How do I do a full new backup if it won't let me
Help.

Hi Melina2,

Please ensure that you are logged in as an administrator.

Is this a full backup or an incremental? If incremental do a new full backup and then do your incremental.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
