Forget windows backup and use anything else. I've lost count of how many times Microsoft's backup has failed us. Time to move on.
I recently attempted to backup my files, but my system rejected Disks after completion of the 1st Disk. I then proceeded to use Memory Sticks. However, I left the backup running and while absent space ran out and for some reason the system started to back-up to the Recovery Partition.
Since this event my computer has been behaving very strangely. Firstly, I received a message saying it was "short of memory". This puzzled me because I have more available space on the hard drive than used. Then I discovered it was something to do with RAM.
These events have led my computer to now run very very slow, freeze, not respond and fade in and out. I cannot access the Recovery Partition to delete unwanted items (as has been suggested), furthermore, as I am not technically minded I would not be too keen
to do this.
If anyone can help with my problem I would be extremely grateful.
