I have the following message when I try to initiate a full system backup to my external HDD on my Win7 system -
'Windows could not enable the automatic back up job for the following reason:
Transaction support within the specified resource manager is not started or was shut down due to an error. (0x80071A91). Try again.'
Searching for this error reveals quite a bit of info - I have tried scanning my HDD for errors/bad sectors, using the Fsutil repair command, removing the logs from the tsx folder. All these are suggestions from the MS help site. My system gives the same error message if I try to go back to the last restore point. System seems to run well, no lock-ups of crashes, just cannot run the backup.
The was a small bad sector when I scanned the HDD some months ago, no change on the recent scan. Anyone encountered this before. I really only need to back up photographs, and documents but it would be nice to have a system image. Any suggestions welcome. My system - Core2 duo, 1Gb HDD, ATI5850, Win7 64bit.
Would be fantastic if a more meaningful error message pointing towards the actual problem area could be generated. I am no tech but can follow most instructions. Posted here due to help I received in the past - thanks in advance.
