    Default Windows 8 Backup

    Hi guys,

    Recently I installed Windows 8 64 bit on my pc for its sleek and quick operation. But i've been having trouble with the built-in backup software. my backups of C:\ no longer work no matter what I did.

    My windows 8 successfully creates a shadow copy, but it fails at 12% with the error message.

    Have you seems to have experienced the same in win 8? hope you can help me and many thanks in advance.

    Default Re: Windows 8 Backup

    To set up a backup in Windows 8 open up Computer right-click on your local drive and select Properties. Then click on the Tools tab and click the Back up now button.
    In the Back up or restore your files window click the link to set up a backup.
    Windows will search for a suitable drive to store the backup or you can also choose a location on your network. If you backup to a network location you might need the password to the share.
    You can have Windows choose what to backup or you can choose the files and directories. Because I like more user control for this tutorial I am choosing what to backup but it’s completely up to you.
    Select the files and folder to include in the backup. Also notice you can select the option to create an image of your local drive.
    Now review the backup job and make sure everything looks correct.
