Might help to post a bit more of the log than that as well as the summary of your definition file, viewed under the Backup Definition Files tab by clicking your definition file and looking at the window underneath the file list.

I'm running Windows 10 Pro and McAfee LifeSafe virus protection.
I do not know which file is causing this problem.  The incremental backup has worked fine until April 17.

I assume the file causing the problem is the previous backup on which Reflect is trying to build.  What is the destination of this backup, e.g. network share, external hard drive, etc?  Did your Windows 10 update to the Creators Update since the last time this worked?  Did you just update to Reflect V7 or anything like that?  And totally off-topic, but you might want to consider enabling compression.  Modern CPUs can do it fast enough that they likely wouldn't be the bottleneck even when dealing with fast SSDs, and as a result in addition to reducing your storage requirements, it will also probably reduce your backup time significantly because your drive will have less data to write. Even on the default Medium setting, the compression ratio is quite good.

Thanks for all the comments.  I verified my incremental backups thru April 16 and also my last full backup on April 3.  All are verified 100% good.  I upgraded to Macrium 7 on April 4.  The last updated from Microsoft was MS Office on April 12.  I'm still looking to see what may have changed on April 17, but so far nothing.

The "Error reading Image file"  message indicates that the backup set that the Incremental is being appended to failed to open. 

Can you confirm that this error is repeatable and not caused by a transient network or other error.  If it is repeatable then could you confirm that the most recent Incremental can be mounted and browsed in Windows Explorer? Thanks

Kind Regards

I'm not an IT person.  My destination drive is a Mybook 3.0 via USB 3.0.  I formatted the Mybook drive, not the quicky format.  I ran the slow format process to erase all the files.  Then I did a new full backup and now my daily incremental backups are working fine, no errors and they verify.  I may never understand the problem and that is OK with me.  I just want it to work.

Great to hear! FYI though (since I actually AM an IT person), the slow format only checks each sector for readability. It does not overwrite data with garbage, just in case you've been relying on it in the past to securely erase disks. And if the issue was indeed data on bad sectors, you might have been able to use CHKDSK /R, which wouldn't have required reformatting the disk -- just in case it ever happens again! Smile
