I am trying to create a backup for my laptop with the built in windows7 backup program.

I am backing up to an external hard drive with plenty of space.

The backup seems to get completed OK and a folder WindowImageBackup is created. However if select properties on the folder the size is zero bytes.

I tried to carry out a restore but get a message
There are no backups available at this location.

Any ideas please?
Many thanks
