Windows backup

Just wanted to remind myself of the outcome of a fairly lengthy battle with Windows 7 trying to figure out why my backups stopped working. With the emphasis on moving to Windows 8, I wanted to P2V my physical laptop and see if I could restore it from a Windows backup – maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t.

Before I could get to this stage though my backups started failing. The link that described my problem and gave a solution is here

The relevant piece being:
DISKPART> automount enable

Although I have no idea how it got turned off.
