A backup for my computer was established by a pro. It worked for many months. Now when I try to back up, it fails with a message to check my VSS and SPP logs. How do I re-establish backup? Windows 7. There is lots of space on the external hard drive.

What back up? Do you mean with third party software? How was it backing up and where too? Was it just files or an image of the entire disk? – Dave Sep 4 '13 at 11:05
A tutorial on Windows Back like… might help. – Ramhound Sep 4 '13 at 12:46
