    I've made sure the service is started and automatic. This all started when
    I had a problem with the partition directly after my Vista one and had to
    format it. It wasn't however, a system volume, but rather just a backup
    volume.
    Can't find any info that helps find a solution.

    Forget it, I've decided to format/reinstall.
