I have a win7 64 bit cient with a C: drive and external USB Drive - both have been backing up flawlessly for a year- today I needed to restore a file from the external drive and I got a message at 81% saying that the drive Z needed formating and the drive could not be mounted.


This is the same on three other machines - I also tried restoring a file from drive C and I get the same error... Help!!
Thanks!!

Hopefully, one of these will work for the OP.

In my case, it turned out that the backup itself had been silently corrupted Posted Image

If the OP has another client on the network, he could try viewing the misbehaving backup from there to eliminate this possibility quickly.
