I am trying to back up my files to a cd but when I try and do it I keep getting the following error; The back up file name could not be used. "D:\BACKUP.bkf". Please ensure it is a valid path and that you have sufficient access. Can anyone please help? I have already lost data due to a computer failure and don't want it to happen again, so would like to back up my data.
I believe that some words, related to fundamental computer operations, may not be used as filenames. 'Backup' may well be one such - try repeating the process with a different stored file name - Fletch01, for example.
Sounds like NTBackup for 2k/XP - I'd be very surprised if it was a filename issue as that is the default name Backup chooses itself. You could rename it anyway, in case a Backup.bkf file already exists. If you are trying to `save` directly to CD (your D: drive) it won't work - you need to save the file to your hard-drive, then burn it to CD afterwards.
