    i agree and I back up daily with MR - tried to use Windows image program, which I used to run weekly. It doesn’t work any more. I saw another post on one of the forum threads indicating a similar problem.
    Hey!, what do you know?. Coincidentally, I have exactly the same problem with Windows backup system. Scheduled to run every Saturday and Sunday respectively on my 2 machines, it has been failing since after installing 1809 with the error code: 0x80070013 and the message: the external HDD is write-protected. After a little search on the web, it seems that has to do with the fact that Windows backup system is deprecated. I don't even bother with it anymore.

    It's perfectly logical. MS figures if they are just gonna delete your files thru updates or Extract or other Voodoo, why bother giving you a backup app when eventually you'll have nothing left to backup!

    What if it fails you one day. That can definitely happens. That's why I always have two third-party backup apps. I can always count on the other one. It had happened to me in the past even though it was not with MR.

    I have about 10 HDDs for backups but still can't afford so many multiples of same backup. 2 is quite enough.

    @CountMike,

    Totally agree. Unless one spends his/her life palying the devil's advocate, I cannot see how both apps can fail the same day at the same time.
