I have tried many times without success to run the Windows 7 backup and restore utility. Sometimes it just stalls without ever finishing and no reported errors. Sometimes it claims there it an error with my backup media (using DVD+R and have tried many brands and even DVD-R with no success). I am doing a simple backup of my photos folder which should span 2 maybe 3 DVDs. Not only that but when it runs to failure it runs painfully slow. How’s got a real answer for me. I am very frustrated.
