I have been using Macrium Reflect Free v6 since June 7 and just upgraded to Macrium Reflect Home edition in part to solve the following problem.
On June 7, I scheduled a full image backup the first Sunday of each month and a differential on weekdays. All those backups have been successful except for a couple of cases until recently. Beginning on July 17, the backups have been failing with the following errors:
Starting Image Initializing Validating location: F:\Macrium\MacriumBackups\ - Invalid (The system cannot find the path specified) Backup aborted! - None of the specified backup locations could be written to
I have been able to perform a successful full and differential backup manually since the errors began, but the errors in the scheduled backups have continued.
My destination drive is a 3 TB Western Digital My Book USB 3.0 drive I bought in December. I ran a CHKDSK /F on it, which found no error. I ran a CHKDSK /R on it, which failed to complete. I ran the Western Digital Drive Utility Complete Drive Test, which found no error. Ever since I bought the drive, I have backed up my data locally to that drive (as well as online) using Crash Plan successfully. l also successfully ran scheduled full and incremental Norton Ghost Image backups to that drive until I acquired Macrium Reflect in early June.
What do you think the problem is and what should I do?
Thank you -- Doug Neuse
