Windows backup returning error
May 21, 2012 1:46 PM Subscribe
I recently bought another 1TB HDD, so I now have two 1TB HDDs (Both western digital; caviar black) and an Intel SSD (operating system).
The new HDD, after one day of use has gone bad. S.M.A.R.T has detected errors, I ran the western digital tool and that also detected errors. I was warned to backup my drive, so I tried to last night but after 2 hours I gave up to re-do it tomorrow (tons of files). I stopped the backup properly and shutdown.
Now this morning I'm trying to get all 830gigs of my files off of the new bad drive, back onto my original storage hdd before the new drive goes completely bad and I lose all of my important files.
The windows restore and backup program is giving me error code: 0x8007045D near the start of the backup. I/O device error.
I've checked the destination HDD and it returned no errors (both with the western didgital tool and using chkdsk). I need to fix this problem quick before my new drive totally fails.
