Default Windows back-up utility question

What Windows services are required to be turned on , in order for the Windows
back-up utility to start up ?
I have been to the Black Viper web-site and used the suggestions there to
disable some services. And I'm wondering if that is the reason I can't get
the Windows back up utility to fully start up.

The main dependency is Removeable Storage, though Shadow Copy may also be
needed.

Your problem may be that the removeable storage database is corrupted, in
which case you need to clear the media pool. This is a very common problem.

I would suggest looking at a more reliable backup solution unless you are
going to monitor the thing like a hawk. Cobian is good for disk backup, but
doesn't do tape.

Default Windows back-up utility question

The Removable Storage is probably the problem as you suggested. I say so
because every time I start the Removable Storage service, it turns itself off
within a second. It will not stay running. I use Acronis back up software ,
but I was concerned that something was wrong with my computer , and the
failure of the Windows backup service was a symptom of the problem.
You suggested I need to clear up the " removable storage database " ,
because of possible corruption. May I ask what is the best way to clear the
removable storage database?
Thanks.
