Windows was unable to save all the data for the file /$Directory




I have a Windows XP SP2 system that uses TSM to backup data
automatically into tape drives.
It works fine when a manual backup is being done, but when the
automatic procedure kicks off ( and especially the user's system is
locked or logged off) there seems to be this error poping up

"Windows was unable to save all the data for the file /$Directory .The
data has been lost. This error may be caused by the failure of your
computer hardware or n/w connection. Please try to save the file

This prompt occurs for other directories also besides /$Directory
including /$Mft. What makes it even worse is that it does not even let
me log into the system after this and throws the below errors when I
try to log in:

"Windows cannot load the user's profile. This may be due to
insufficient security rights. If this problem persists contact your n/
w admin." followd by

"Windows cannot load the user's profile but has logged you on with the
default profile of the system. DETAIL:Insufficient system resources
exist to complete the required service"

This brings me back to the Ctrl+Alt+Del screen and I have to restart
the system to let me log in.

I am new to TSM and back up procedures and any help would be

Thank you.
