  1. Do you use your computer while it's running a full local backup?


    I have Easeus todo backup, I never use my computer while it's running a full backup because I think it might cause a problem with the backup.

    I can't find any info on this subject.

    Backup Issue - Microsoft 10 - Cannot perform initial backup

    5 views Backup Issue - Microsoft 10 - Cannot perform initial backup




    My backup stubbornly refuses to run. I can't run the initial backup, therefore the file history backups don't run either. This has been an ongoing problem for quite some time. Suggestions I've received have not worked so far. Following is the problem
    and the failed resolution attempts:

    • I get this message from the Event Log:

    Unable to scan user libraries for changes and perform backup of modified files for configuration C:\Users\Papa\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\FileHistory\Configuration\Config

    catalog2

    config1

    config2

    • In another thread from July, someone suggested checking a particular service (I forget the name just now) is running. It is.

    • Two days ago a Microsoft employee suggested the following steps. These steps resulted in no change, still no backup:

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft community.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to start and stop the services “Windows backup” and “volume shadow copy” and check if it helps.

    • Press “Windows+R” and in the run command box type “services. MSc”.
    • Search for the service “Windows Backup” double click on it and check whether the service is started or not, click on “OK” button. I suggest you to stop and start the service again.
    • Once done again search for the service “Volume shadow copy” double click on it and check whether the service is started or not. I suggest you to stop and start the service again, click on “OK” button and
      check whether you can perform backup successfully.
    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.



    • I performed these steps multiple times. The backup still crashes, with the same error message. In addition I collected the following error message, but only one time:

    Unable to start a backup cycle for configuration C:\Users\Papa\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\FileHistory\Configuration\Config

    Event ID: 200

    • Can anyone help me with this stubborn problem?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    We sincerely regret for the inconvenience caused.



    Method 1Perform a Clean Boot to see if there is any software conflict as clean boot helps in eliminating software conflicts.



    Note: After performing the troubleshooting steps in clean boot, follow Step 7 from the link to return the computer toNormal startup mode.



    Method 2: Run check disk to check for any errors.



    Note: If any bad sectors are found in the hard drive then it might try to repair that particular sector. If you have any data on that, it might be lost.

    You may also follow the below link and check if it helps:

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.



    Thank you.

    -----------------------------------

    Yes, I need more assistance.

    I ran a disk check on both the source and destination drives for the backup. No errors.

    I executed a clean boot. (I have left myself in the clean boot). It doesn't seem to work

    I'm not sure to check whether it has worked, and I just couldn't tell. How do I confirm that the initial, image, backup has been completed?

    The event viewer reports this error every time I attempt to manually initiate a backup:

    Unable to scan user libraries for changes and perform backup of modified files for configuration C:\Users\Papa\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\FileHistory\Configuration\Config

    Event ID: 201.

    I'm assuming that with this error, my backups are not being done.
     
  4. Do you use your computer while it's running a full local backup?

    Local account installation question


    I'm fairly certain that Skip this step was available in 10.0.130 - the workaround in Step 20 (back button) is no longer required.

    The currently known, as of 10.0.130, ways to create a Local account sign-in are
    • Skip this step at the MS account creation phase
    • No Internet connection during the install
    • static IP (post# 2 by Fragment) - New (to me anyway)
