Microsoft backup program fails at 4 Gigabytes under Windows XP SP3
Initially I could not get the backup program to work at all, and then I ran regsvr32 ole32.dll which apparently reset the parameters to allow backup to run, however, when it reached 4 Gigabytes after a full system backup had been specified, the program stopped with the report results below this message.
The backup was going to a 400 GB WD Passport drive with 231 GB free space (formatted FAT32) from a 300 GB drive (ST3320613AS), 80 GB used/120 GB free (formatted NTFS).
Can the standard File Explorer backup program be used to backup the entire system with this configuration?
Any help or ideas are most welcome - especially before I have to go buy a program to do what seems like ought to be built in from the get-go...
