Unable to Take Backup

  Harjinder_Singh 07 Jun 13

Respected Sir, I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bits but when I try to take backup following error message was displayed: The backup application could not start due to an internal error:

The service cannot be started,either because it is disabled or because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.(0x80070422).

Block Level Backup Engine Service also be not running when I try to run this service manually following error message was displayed :

Windows could not start the Block Level Backup Engine Service service on Local Computer. Error 0x800700b7: Cannot create a file when that file already exits.

I already reinstall the operating system, run under safe mode and clean boot by using msconfig, run scf/scannow under command prompt but the problem not solved.Provide me solution for this.

This error usually occurs if one of the services required for windows backup to work is disabled or not started.

To check for the services, click on start, in the start search bar type services and then press enter.

Please check that the following services are enabled:

"Remote Procedure Call" (RPCSS) should be enabled, Automatic.

"COM+ Event System" (EventSystem) should be enabled, Manual.

"System Event Notification Service" (SENS) should be enabled, Automatic.

"Volume Shadow Copy" (VSS) should be enabled, Manual.

"Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider" (SWPRV) should be enabled, manual.

"Block Level Backup Engine Service" should be enabled, manual

Once you make any changes according to the specifications listed above, you can try a backup and check if that resolves the issue
