Resolve the issue when Windows® OS hangs up while taking backup
What are the guidelines to resolve the issue when Windows OS hangs up while taking backup?
Problems can come up with the use of any computer. Some problems tend to make a computer inoperable and this would make accessing information on the system impossible. All Operating System developers and computer manufacturers therefore recommend users to backup information on the system. Windows based Operating Systems come preinstalled with a backup utility that can be used to backup information on the system. The backup utility can be used to either backup information on a separate partition or to a removable media. There are some problems that might come up with the use of backup tool on Windows OS. These include blue screen errors coming up when backing up data, backup hanging, error messages coming up when creating backup etc. The backup hang issue would force users to manually restart the system resulting in incomplete backup creation. This problem has to be solved as quickly as possible as it can cause corruption of the OS as well as the data storage medium on the system used to create backup.
Following details gives users more information regarding tips to fix Windows backup hang issue:
- Scan and remove infections

- Repair Operating System
Scan and remove infections
Windows backup hang issue on your computer might be because of the presence of malwares within the system. Malware infections cause problems by locking the information on the system so that users would not be able to backup the data before reinstalling the OS. Such problems can be fixed by installing the system with a good antivirus program and removing all malware infections from the system.
Check active services
Another reason as to why backup tool on your Windows OS is hanging can be incompatible services running in the background of the system. Incompatible services tend to clash with the service associated with the backup tool to cause the problem. All Windows users having backup hang issue are suggested to check the services that are running in the background using the task manager. If some incompatible services are found, terminating them would solve the problem and get the backup tool working.
Damage to some of the system files associated with the backup tool can also cause the system to hang up. This problem comes up as the backup tool would run into errors when the damaged files are invoked for function. In such cases, the problem can be fixed by repairing the damaged system files on the OS using default OS repair tool and the installation disc.
