I just bought a brand new laptop from the Microsoft store and upgraded to Windows 10 as soon as I got home. Now I want to create a system image backup to my 1 TB Seagate external hard drive. However, I keep getting this error message seconds after I start backing up:
It says"the specified backup disk cannot be found" but my computer recognizes the hard drive so I don't know what the issue is.
I already formatted a 500 GB partition to NTFS which should be more than enough space. I have my old windows 7 system img backed up too so my hard drive is functional.
I have tried running an SFC scan but this message still pops up. If anyone could help me with this I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
Update: So It seems that currently, Windows 10 can only do a system image backup on an external hard drive if it does NOT have any partitions set up. But I must have my partitions so if anyone figures out how to store the back up on a partition please tell me how. Thanks!
