Trying to back up using Vista, backup fails with error message access denied Ox8007005.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Have you renamed your user account? Do you have a password for the Administrator account?, if not, and you are the owner/admin of your PC, set a password.

Hi, Jacee - No, I have not changed the user account name, and I have never had a password - simply because my wife would have a hard time doing anything more than "Switch User." More to the point, backups have previously been successful. Maybe I should try backing up with Nero instead?

You can try....I personally don't care for Nero, but if it works for you, then do it.

Thanks, Jacee. It doesn't really solve the problem, but if Nero works, so be it. I appreciate your having responded.

Do you find any more verbose information regarding your error in the event viewer, accessible from your computer management console ( Right click computer / manage / event viewer )
