Win 7 normal backup software is unable to complete a backup, I suspect because the drive is going into some sort of hibernate mode.
John, some external drives have firmware which puts them to sleep. If it's that, I don't think you'll find a solution.
If it's due to Windows, try the suggestions here..
The supplied backup software only seems to be able to back up files that are accessible to the account its been run in which is a drawback.
I don't have any experience with that. Maybe it can be solved by taking ownership.

Thanks for that. I hadn't realized Windows 7's image backup does not support drives with advanced-format technology. Certainly a surprise to me!
And the one you found from WD..
Just in passing, we do know that restoring to such a drive on a Toshiba computer using its recovery media can make trouble. See my message about that.
