    I can backup my pc 3 ways. Microsoft Backup, Acronis, Western Digital My Book. The last 2 work fine. For the first time I've had a problem with Microsoft Backup. The backup will not complete because: "one of your backup files could not be created, I/O device error" along with error# 0x8078002A. I also tried to create just a system image. Did not work either.
    Why is this suddenly happening? It would be nice to know which file could not be "created". Anyway waiting for your help. Thanks

    well as you know the limitation of windows 7 is that the backup get full and you need to manually delete the old ones to store the new ones, so I will suggest you check if that's the case, maybe it wouldn't allow you to do an system image cuz is full. you can look into it!!

    Not Solved. I am using a 3TB external drive. Plenty of space available. If you mean the :C drive or recovery drive there is plenty of space there also. What else could it be?
    What is error code 0x8078002A & can it be corrected?
