    Getting an error message "The backup location cannot be accessed. Review your backup and restore settings..."

    I am using Windows vista business edition from last two years. I was able to run backup at least a week from last 2 years without any issue but now, windows flashes an error message "An error occurred. The following information might help you resolve the error:The backup location cannot be accessed. Review your backup and restore settings and check your hardware configuration. (0x81000002)".What's the issue and how to fix the same?

    It seems that you were using the automatic backup functionality of windows. If you are facing this issue from last few days then try to run "System restore". It will fix your issue.To do the same,cllick on "Start" button and type "System Restore" in the search box.You will see a search result with an option "System Restore" in Program List. Just click on it.It can ask for Administrator password or confirmation. If it does so,don't hesitate to provide the same. Now in the "System restore " dialogue box,click on an option which shows "Choose a different restore point" and then click on "Next".You will see a list of restore point. Choose the one which was created before you experienced the error and click on "next".Finally click on "Finish" button and you are done. Computer will restart and will bring your system to the state when it was working fine.
