Backup failing at Syste State


J

Jerry

Win XP Pro SP2: when using the Windows Backup utility,
the backup fails if System State is included, with the
following error logged:

Error: Could not access portions of directory System State\COM+ Class
Registration Database.
You may not have permission to open the file, or the directory may be
missing or damaged.
Please contact the owner or administrator.

Folder System State\COM+ Class Registration Database

Error: Could not access portions of directory System State\Registry.
You may not have permission to open the file, or the directory may be
missing or damaged.
Please contact the owner or administrator.

Why is this?

For the backup of system state to work you need;

To be logged on as an administrator or backup operator
Doing it locally (it won't work from a remote machine)
Doing a full (normal) backup (it fails if you try to do it with an
incremental backup)

Are you using an administrator account?

Thanks for your reply. The answer is yes to all: I was
doing a full (normal) backup, logged on locally with an
administrator account.

It worked fine until a couple of months ago. Nothing was
changed at the PC though, apart from Windows and Office
updates, and Norton Internet Security updates.

Jerry, I am having a similar problem, but my backups stop at data files, not
system state... Same errors: ie: Portions of ..... cannot be read...

I am using XP SP2 also, using an admin account. I hope there's a solution.

Peter.

I too developed the same error on my Windows XP professional SP3. Hope some one would find a solution too. Have tried these procedures with no luck
  1. Turned the Shadow volume service on or restarted.
  2. Turned the COM+ system Application through sevice components in administrative tools.
  3. Tried to back up in administrative mode that is on booting the computer pressing F8
None of the above the above methods were successful.

Restoring this backup set will cause system failure.

Any suggestions is always welcome.
