Unable To Create Backup Log File

    I'm getting the error message "unable to create backup log file" frequently, but randomly on the computer my VP2 is connected to. It comes along, prevents any uploading to the internet and then, seemingly at random, allows uploading again.

    I contacted Davis about this, and they said it's a new error to do with the new Norton. However, I'm no running Norton. Just in case though, I disabled all anti-virus (AVG) and any spyware programs, and it still does it.

    This only started a few days ago. Anyone else having the same problem?

    More info needed. Operating system are you doing uploads to other websites bar your own???

    Worth running chkdsk /r in case weatherlink is trying to write to duff section of the hard drive.

    To do that presuming XP start run cmd and type chkdsk <volume> /r
