    When I run the system backup(found in Control Panel > Backup & Restore(Windows 7)), it's always stuck at 97%. I wait for hours but it never finishes. How do I fix this problem? Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Use another form of backup. Macrium Reflect Free works every time.

    Sorry for taking so long to answer. Had huge computer problems among other issues. I'll try this program when I can but it STILL doesn't entirely solve the problem. How do I prevent system backup from stopping at 97% and make it go all the way to 100%? Since this program's from Microsoft, it makes sense to me that this would be fixed by now! Thanks again in advance for any assistance.

    What type of backup are you doing, a file or system image or both?

    Can you see the notes during the backup to get any sense of where it might be stopping? For instance, the System Image shows which partitions are being backed up. If it stops during the C partition backup it might help.

    If you are doing a file backup, you might be able to remove some file locations from the backup and find out if one folder or file is causing the problem.

    If you are having other computer problems, it might be related to those.

    If you look in the Windows\Logs directory, there is a folder for WindowsBackup logs you might check.

    I have been having same problem in Windows 10. The backup gets stuck at 97% while "creating system image." Today, I successfully created a system image by clicking on the link "create system image" on the top left in the window: Control Panel->System Security -> Backup and Restore (Windows 7). I also backed up the files I want by clicking on the "Change settings" and choosing "Let me choose" instead of letting Windows choose and unticking the create system image. So it takes 2 steps instead of 1, and I will have to remember to create a system image from time to time separately, but at least it worked.
