I have exactly the same problem with the exception that I have never been
able to get Back Up to work. Did you resolve the issue? Are we all waiting
for the next/first SP?
I tried the System file Checker suggested by one of the other replies.
Twice the verification got to 86% and then erroed with "Windows Resource
Protection could not perform the requested operation."
Any further ideas. I'm especially miffed as I've just paid out for an
external HD to back up to..
BTW Does anyone know of good software to back up VISTA Home Premium that
will restore when required?
