    I'm trying to backup computer to an external hard drive using Vista home
    premium. Keep getting the error message 0x81000006, Windows cannot find the
    drive. The drive it cannot find is a USB port that I use all the time to
    copy files to a flash drive. Only when I try the backup, I get the error
    message. Anyone know what this is about and how to get around it? Thanks,
    Don P.

    This sounds familiar... I believe you are not permitted to back up to the
    root of the drive, and need to make a directory, and to point the software
    THERE, to perform the backup. You didn't say what software you were using to
    perform the backup with, or if you were just copying and pasting files from
    one drive to another.
