  • Two things: - First I assume you are using the recommended option to "Use VSS" and not the AOMEI option? Second what is your computer make, model, RAM and age? It may be a low specification, old machine, running Windows 10 which is struggling to run…
  • Have you looked in Windows "Disk Management" to see if you can see the partition? If you can see it there then you can create a new volume, which will allocate the partition a drive letter, to allow you to use the disk. See http://www.dummies.com/co…
  • If you have Backupper set up to create backups on a schedule then you need the process running. Are you saying that you have not set up a backup schedule and want the process stopped? To do this go into "Computer Management" then click on "Services"…
  • Why do a complete backup every day? Why not set the schedule to do Differential Backups (DBs) instead of full backups? I know your header says you are using Incremental Backups (IBs) but you have to keep every single one of these. Deleting any will …
  • Is your operating system Windows or is it a Mac? The VSS is a Windows feature and will not work if it is Mac? In the Settings/VSS tab try the other option "Use AOMEI's built-in...." and try that.
  • Have you set Backupper to use the Windows Volume Shadow Copy Service to allow backing up of files that are in use? See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shadow_Copy. In AOMEI Settings select the VSS tab and ensure that "Use VSS (Recommended)" option is …
  • I used another 3rd party program (not AOMEI) to shrink the C: partition on which Windows is located. I can't remember the program's name but after shrinking the partition the OS would not boot at all. I had to reinstall the OS. My point is that only…
  • FAT32 is only limited to 2TB if the sector size is 512 bytes. If the sector size is 4096 bytes then the limit increases to 16TB. Source here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_Allocation_Table#FAT32. If in doubt use NTFS, not FAT32.
  • These are my thoughts. They are not facts. It seems to me that the backup process isn't just backing up the disk but also the hardware configuration and environment it sits in. i.e. The motherboard, graphics card etc. So if the HDD is sitting in a c…
  • I am only worried about the negative lines of text in the logs not the logs themselves. After reading them can you tell me if these negative lines of text mean I will not be able to restore my PC from images created?
  • See picture which shows "System Backup41.adi" dated 23/02/2018 and "System Backup43.adi" dated 02/03/2018. I had deleted the extra "System Backup42.adi" dated 01/03/2018 which had been run a day early, out of schedule. Backups as at 2nd March 2018.…
  • For now I will carry on without changes but if the issue becomes more frequent then I will create a new backup task.
  • As long as the problem doesn't get any worse then I can live with it. It has only happened twice since Backupper was installed in October 2017 and it is a simple matter to delete the extra backup. I was just curious and also thought AOMEI would be i…
  • I have not been away from home for any "Friday to Wednesday" periods and my computer is used every day. The most I have been away is for one night and even if this was a Friday then it would have run a backup on Saturday or Sunday when I switched th…
  • Did your backup include both the C: partition and the "System Reserved" partition? The SR partition contains the boot manager (see here https://www.lifewire.com/windows-boot-manager-bootmgr-2625813) compatible with the C: partion and I believe that …
  • When I say a day early I do not mean that in an exact way. I think the first time it happened it was at some random time (morning or afternoon?) the day before it should have run. The second time I think it started at 6pm on the Thursday, 24 hours e…
  • Does anyone know if there is a keyboard shortcut that accidentaly triggers an unscheduled backup to happen?
  • Here are 3 pictures showing my backup configuration. Backupper Schedule1.png Backupper Schedule2.png Backupper Schedule3.png
