Well when I try to backup my hard drive to my external hard drive all it does is run until the 50% mark and then it just stops. No errors. The program is still working it just stops. I tried backing up a small file and it went through.
What do I do?!!
I have the newest version of Comodo Backup and I run on Windows 7 64-bit.
Well I really dont want to have to do that. I dont want my hard drive to randomly get filled up then all of a sudden go back to normal once the backup gets moved. I want a backup program that will backup to my external hard drive when I want with no problems! And I have yet to find that program.
Providing this method does actually work, the option to run a task on completion is part of the job setup and would be saved with the other job parameters. This means you’d only have to set this up once.
I would only use this method if we can’t resolve the original issue, or as an interim measure while the original issue is being investigated.
FYI - If it was me, I’d use the MOVE command instead of COPY. To be even safer, I’d create a small script that copied the backup file to the external, checked that the backup file actually existed on the external and then deleted the backup file form the internal drive. If you need a hand creating this script, let me know.
Wow! Thanks guys You guys are lots of help. Not like the LivePCSupport. They suck!
I will uninstall and install. I am just trying to do another backup to see if that works.
Oh and Panic, yes I got it. I think I like the new name
Yes i know about running a task but I wouldnt want the backup to go to my local disk all the time. I want to know what my hard drive space is right all the time. If I backup to the local disk then it would bring down my space and then it would all of a sudden just back to normal, I dont want that.
But I will try all this if this new backup messes up.
Actually, yes you are right. That happened with the last backup program I wanted to use. Though now I found another but I just cant get it to do Incremental backups on a schedule, its asking for a name and password.
But anyways, yes you are right. It would just stop and say it was backing up but it was just frozen without the program being frozen.
Please run a check disk. It could be some bad sectors or cyclic redundancy check.
If this is not the cause please create a dump file when program stops. (Go to task manager, select cbu.exe and choose “Create dump file”).
Compress it and let me know if you can upload it somewhere (it has at least 40MB compressed).
