Backup button in control panel does not work

Recommended Posts

I discovered that my windows backup was not running. I went to control panel and tried to use \"backup my computer\" and that did not work. I got to \"backup and restore\" and all it did was sit there and blink at me when I pressed the button. All ackup and restore buttons seem to have lost all functionality. Windows backup was working just fine until about a month ago and would certainly like to have it back again. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Please check the following services.


Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider
Block Level Backup Engine Service
Volume Shadow Copy
Windows Backup


If one of them does not running, please enable them.

Right-click "Computer" - "Manager"-"Services" to check or change the services.
