Windows backup fails (with error code 2155348010)

by

This was maddening because I would reformat the drive with different block sizes and it would still fail! No matter how I formatted the drive it would always fail.

In the end I found this article; http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/search/1/a_id/3868

Basically Download the WD Quick Format Tool from here – http://download.wdc.com/misc/WD_Quick_Formatter_Win_1_2_0_10.zip

Extract it and run it.

Format the drive as the most compatible. NOT XP mode.

That’s it my friends. Job solved. Windows backups working.
