    When I first set up Backup it completed successfully, but now I keep getting the error, [attachment=88322:Win7 Backup error.GIF] (Errorcode: 0x81000015).

    My C:\ drive has 298G free and the external drive the backup is saved to has over 800G free. Anyone know a solution? And, if not, how do you turn off Backup. I'm using Carbonite online backup, so I don't really need it. Thanks in advance.

    If you open Windows Backup (Control Panel Backup and Restore) do you have a back up schedule turned on? If so shut down the scheduled back up.

    Like Dave Myers,
    Windows Backup appeared to work well for a while, then started returning 0x81000015 error codes.
    Several sites offer advice re checking disks for errors, etc. I've tried all these things, but am still getting the 0x81000015 error codes.
    Anyone got any new ideas?

    In Windows Secrets Newsletter Issue 269, Fred Langa was praising Win7's image backup system, and he's right, provided the damned thing works!

    Have you run Disk Cleanup?

    Are you using third party file compression software?

    Have you tried disabling your A/V software during the backup?

    Check for a log file in C:\Windows\Logs\WindowsBackup. See if there is any useful information in it.

    See the last post in the thread at http://forums.techarena.in/operating...ms/1278453.htm.

    See "0x81000015" error message when you back up files in Windows 7.
