Backup failing - Error Code 3

Postby gilbreen » Tue Aug 23, 2016 10:39 am

Hello,

I am fairly new to Image for Windows. I have been using it in conjunction with the IFWRotate script. I have it set to keep two full backups with 6 differentials for each full backup. It was working for a week or so, then I started getting an Error Code 3 and the backup would fail. I deleted all the backups and had it start again, again, it worked for several days, then started failing. In the interim, version 3 was released, so I installed it and set up the IFWRotate script. I again deleted all the old backups and started fresh. It worked for the full backup and six differentials, then began to fail once again with Error Code 3. From what I have read, Error Code 3 is a generic error, but I don't know where to begin. I haven't made any changes to the hardware and I don't see any other issues with the PC. The backups are stored on an external USB drive.

Here is the excerpt from the log:

Most likely you have a bad drive (sectors) although I suppose could be cable
error as well . The windows error code is:

ERROR_CRC
23 (0x17)
Data error (cyclic redundancy check).
