I repeat: My back up is supposed to be backed up on My second drive (New
Volume L) and has 91 gb free. Drive L is the only drive enabled for back up
and is far from being full It is NOT a recovery partition. I have gone to
the registry and deleted the
DisableConfig value and I have tried unchecking Hide hidden files and
folders Cleared the Hide protected operating system files, and still cannot
make a backup. I thought Vista Basic was the only system with Group Policy
control. I am using vista Premium. I just don't know what else to do.
Just wait and see I guess. Thanks
