Hi I'm trying to back up my Windows 7 Pro 64bit onto an external hard drive but every time I try to backup I get an error. The error code says: The backup application could not start due to an internal error: The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. (0x80070422). I went to the microsoft website and started these services:

  i. Volume Shadow Copy (VSS) - "Manual"
 ii. Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider (SWPRV) - "Manual"
iii. Remote Procedure Call (RPCSS) - "Automatic"
iv. COM+ Event System (eventsystem) - "Manual" & "Automatic"
 v. System Event Notification Service (sens) - "Automatic"
vi. Windows Backup – “Manual”

I don't know why it won't backup. Any help would be appreciated

it said self answered can u provied the solution?
