I had NTbackup installed and working , but now when I try to do the
systemstate backup it starts backing up and within a minute or so it says
that windows backup utility has encountered an error and needs to shut down.
I reinstalled it and ran it again , but got the same error. The funny thing
is if I try to back individual files on my hard disk it will do that. Anybody
know what the problem is and how to fix it?

Better and Safer Alternative:

I would suggest investing in a good external backup drive.

Examples:
