    I have a Lenovo T420 with windows 10 pro installed. It will not perform a complete backup. I get this message when I try to backup:

    Any ideas?

    To the right of Check Your Backup is the More Information button. Click the button and tell us what it says. Also, do you have the required permissions to backup the files you are trying to? Do you have a 3rd party antivirus, or are you only using Windows Defender?

    I am not a fan of the windows backup utility. I use and recommend acronis true image. Acronis just works; no problems, no issues, no failed to restore, etc.
