Before: I had Windows Vista 32 Bit Home Premium and everything was fine. Last weekend I stored all the content of my computer to an external Toshiba USB connected hard disk by using Easy Transfer as supplied with Vista. I checked my computer for its Win7 abilities by using the free win7 upgrade advisor from Microsoft, which confirmed my expectations, that everything is fine for receiving a brand new Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit. And I did it; I installed a completely new Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit operating system. This happened quite fast (less than 30 minutes).I only had some confusion with my Belkin F5D8035 USB WLAN stick, because the setup.exe from the product CD needed to be started under Vista compatibility mode. Even the installation of all the software packages worked fine and even more surprising was that the restore of all the easy transfer files and options worked fine. Now my problem: I can not make a backup from my new installation to the external Toshiba USB hard disk with the Win7 backup software. It always stops after 10%. I checked the hard disk, I formatted it, I touched it gently... nothing helps. Perhaps does someone of you have an idea?
