Can't Backup WMI Repository


Recommended Posts

When backing up the system volume (XP64 SP2) using Retrospect version 7.7.325, I get the following error:

Copying Sys (C:)

MapError: unknown Windows error -2,147,217,406

W2dbWMIDbOp: pWMIRep->BackupREGDB failed, osErr -2147217406, error -1001

Can't back up WMI Repository, error -1001 ( unknown Windows OS error)

Writer "WMI Writer" backup failed, error -1017 ( insufficient permissions).

Component "WMI" backup failed, error -1017 ( insufficient permissions)


Is this backup still useful? Can this error be fixed, or can it be ignored?
