Ive got a 1.5TB external Seagate Barracuda HD in a Thermaltake BlacX docking station. Ive ran Seatools on both HDs. The one in my laptop has failed the long generic test as well as the long self drive test, but it passed the chkdsk sector scanning. I try to backup to the external with Backup and Recovery Free v10.1 and each time I get an error: http://lookpic.com/i/273/0vZvJbX2.jpeg Now Ive gone through Windows Services and have checked the Volume Shadow Copy as well as all dependencies for that service and rebooted. Ive also re-registered all .dll files and service files for Volume Shadow Copy. Paragons Hot Processing also creates the same error. Now my question is will I be able to backup the entire Windows partition if I disable the hot processing? I am also wondering if maybe the option to switch between processing may be the culprit.
