Hi Guys.

Here's the problem in a nutshell. I have a client system setup running Windows Vista Ultimate x64 edition. I go to run a backup, and after about 5 mins of running the backup fails and reports the following message: "Insuffcient system resources exist to complete the requested service. (0x800705AA)"

I've googled it, and loads of people have suffered this problem when running windows updates, and occasionally during backups. In the context of backups, some have implied it's a problem to do with the caching of large files (which would makse sense when backing up) but I've yet to find a reolution.

Can anyone help? I'm fully up to date on the latest Windows Update patches.

Thanks guys! :)

Many thanks. I stumbled across something similar before and had no joy, but this looks like a slightly different kb number. I will give it a go (when I see the client tomorrow) and let you know. Thanks a lot for posting this :)

Many thanks indeed! Your suggestion worked a treat - the registry fix was right still for Windows Vista x64, and we have managed our first sucessful backup. Amazingly I realised this was the article I'd seen before, but didn't want to try incase I screwed Vista up. Thanks for given me that little push to take a chance on it :)

Thanks also for you fast response - will award points immediately.

Many thanks,
