    Unaddressed error in Macrium Reflect Free causing backup aborted


    I have the latest version of Macrium Reflect Free and have used it successfully create Full and Differential backups but i removed the external usb hdd to do a backup on another pc recently and when the scheduled backup tried to run it had no destination drive to use so I reattached the drive, deleted the schedules and started again but now i get this message just trying to run the first Full backup:

    Backup aborted! - Unable to read from disk - Error Code 21 - The device is not ready.

    This error message is not listed anywhere in the Reflect forum nor does it come up with a search of the forums.

    Can anybody help me out with this? Here is the summary:
