The back up utility does not finish the backup.Out of 106,000 files it backes uu 1850.
What could the cause be??? I have tried to back up numerous times and the utility freezes.

The Windows backup utility should not be used for new backups. It is something of a legacy tool for people who have backups made using it from XP's predecessors Windows 2000 and NT.

Find yourself a new backup program, because even if you got past that point, the backup program only works with tape drives or floppy discs. You probably don't have a tape drive on your system, and floppy based backups will cost you a small fortune assuming you can even find some place still selling floppies.
