Vista Backup fault

  Crook 17:50 21 Nov 2007

I want to use Vista back up tool but get the following fault:
Back up failed; error number 0x80070020

I have no ther backup system installed having uninstalled Acronis 10 and Back2zip.

Any suggestions please? Crook

80070020 = "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by
another process"

The most common cause of this is an anti-virus or anti-spyware product with
an on-access scanning feature.

Re-install Acronis TI10.

I agree withn pineman TI10 is a superb standalone tool for backups,only other advice i can give is to optimise your system/good housekeeping, before you backup........
