Windows backup ran on the machine successfully. Now when I try to start it using the control panel there is no response. I also tried typing windows backup in the command line which brought up the icon but clicking it did nothing. I saw on google that some said it might be solved by changing the service from manual to automatic that it might work but that didn't help either. The task does seem to come up in the command prompt but it would be difficult for the user to use. How can windows backup be reactivated again?
