You haven't said what your OS is. If it's Vista click here

Sorry should have said - am using Imgburn on XP

  tamsin 14:43 13 Nov 2009

Have also run check disk and defrag

It sounds like you are using MS backup. Using this is just as bad as having none. You should invest in Acronis True Image and a External USB drive

Am now on Vista (have dual boot system)- and about to run backup using Acronis - my previous backups have failed - will write down the failure notice this time.

Why not just create Images? thats what I do

Yes I call it backup but I do create images with Acronis. Thank goodness this time it rang successfully. I ran replace clusters on the hard drive and it seems to have worked. If I want to do a small backup I use ImgBurn and that usually works well too.
Thanks for your help - all seems well now.
