Re: back up does'nt work
When I started out with my Vista Home Premium computer, I tried
to use DVD's as my backup media; however, this was futile for me because it
took too long and used many DVD's, and often gave errors such as yours. I
bought an external 160 GB USB drive for about $60 that I use solely for
backups and that has made my computer
backup management a breeze.
