    Error: 0x80070005 Access is denied Backup failed.

    Hi
    I posted this in another group and haven't received a response, also I
    notice another poster here had the same problem but doesn't seem to have had
    it resolved. So, I'm trying again...:)

    I tried using the backup feature on my vista lasptop for the first time and
    received the above error message. i am the only user on the computer and
    have administrator rights.

    The error message was accompanied by the following information:

    the backup did not complete successfully
    an error occured the following information might help you resolve the error
    access is denied.
    Error: 0x80070005 Access is denied Backup failed.

    I was backingup some of the contents of the local disk (c) and had unchecked
    the recovery disk.
    In addition, before the backup began it asked for permission to format the
    dvd i was backing up to. I gave this permission and now it seems the disk
    is unusable for anything even although it is still empty. please excuse my
    ignorance as i don't know alot about computers. I've been using windows 98
    for the past 13 years. ;))

    Any advice would be
    appreciated. TIA

    File Backup fails with the following error:
    Access is denied. (0x80070005)

    This error occurs because the recovery partition is enabled for File Backup or System Restore
    and is almost full. To work around this, do not select D:\ as a backup source. Also, go to
    System Protection in Control Panel and make sure that D:\ is not enabled for restore points.

    thanks for your reply Michael. I have checked both these settings and D:\
    is not selected as a back up source in either of the settings. Any other
    advice? Please?

    For my Automatic Backup destination I bought a 160 GB external hard drive
    (k: in my system) for about $60, which works without problems. I initially
    tried using DVD's but it took way too long and never did seem to finish.
    An external hard drive will reduce your heartburn considerably.

    ok.. fair enough...but should I REALLY have to buy an external hard drive
    (more £'s) to back up on to when the OS is supposed to do it without it??
    I'm not even trying to back up huge amounts, just photos, and even then,
    there aren't that many.

    I have also used a tool called SyncToy to back up specific files to a DVD.
    A reference is:
