  • Hi – I think my information can help.

    As a professional IT user and extreme geek, I wouldn’t use Windows® Backup software.

    Instead I would go and buy a license for the Acronis® True Image 2009, the best backup program on the market.

    I’m using it myself.

  • I'm having this problem. I ran CHKDSK, but it didn't find any problems with my drive. This happened a few days ago and after I rebooted I performed a backup and it completed fine. I'm going to try another reboot to see if it helps, but I'd like to not have to reboot my computer to perform a backup.


    These are the files it skips:

    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\ because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Dan\Documents because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Public\Documents because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Dan\Downloads because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Dan\Music because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Public\Music because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Dan\Pictures because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Public\Pictures because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Dan\Videos because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Public\Videos because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Dan\AppData\Roaming because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Dan\AppData\Local because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Dan\AppData\LocalLow because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Dan\Contacts because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Dan\Desktop because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Dan\Downloads because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Dan\Favorites because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Dan\Links because is it on corrupted drive C:\.
    Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\Dan\Saved Games because is it on corrupted drive C:\.

  • Hello again:

    Sorry, below are some steps you can follow:

    1. Start your PC.
    2. Click Start and choose Computer.
    3. Right-click on the disk (C:\) and choose Properties.
    4. Navigate to Tools tab.
    5. In the Error-checking, click on Check now... button.
    6. Check the both checkboxes, 1) Automatically fix file system errors
    and the second 2) Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.
    7. Click Start.

    Note: You'll get a message saying "Windows can't check the disk while it's in use",
    click Schedule disk check instead and restart the PC.

    Check also the following link for CHKDSK:

    Have a  nice day...

  • When I rebooted Windows said it needed to check my disk. I didn't initiate the scan, Windows did this on it's own. It said it didn't find any problems and then the computer rebooted and I was back in Windows. I performed a manual backup and it completed fine just like before. It usually takes a few days before I'll see the notification that it's skipping those directories. I'll post back when it does.

  • I'd say it's solved for me. After rebooting and running CHKDSK things have been running smoothly for over a month now.

    As a self proclaimed 'IT user and extreme geek', you sure don't put a lot of faith in your operating system of choice. Why is that? Please Tell Me!

    An image is not the answer to all backup scenarios you might run into.
    Images aren't always a supported backup method.

  • I have the same issue and yet my hard drive is fine. Chkdsk reports no errors yet the backup continues to report

    "Windows Backup skipped C:\Users\blah\Blah because is it on corrupted drive C:\"

    for numerous folders.

     

    Clearly this is an issue with Windows 7 backup. Searching the web shows it is a common problem.

     

    Please can Microsoft address these questions:

    - what is the real cause of the files being skipped (as it is clearly not corruption)?

    - how can we get Windows 7 backup to work reliably?


    I am using a Dell laptop with 2T eSATA external drive for backup.

  • I have the same issue.  My machine is an HP Pavillion p6120t.  It is running windows 7x64 ultimate.  my machine was upgraded from windows vista ultimate.

    I will try the chkdisk and reboot....this is definetly an issue with the software because it is basically reporting that my entire c drive is corrupt and that is not true....i can access all of the locations that it says is corrupt just fine.
