20 Most Recent NTI Backup Now EZ Questions & Answers


There are 3 possible reasons why you are getting this error message:

1. An invalid character in QuickBooks installation path.
2. An incorrect path setting in the Windows registry.
3.Insufficient hard drive space available to install the QuickBooks program.

To fix this problem, please do the following:
  1. Restart your computer, and reinstall QuickBooks.
  2. Confirm that at least 2.5 GB of disk space is available for installing QuickBooks (Quickbooks 2010 requires 1.5GB of disk space):
    1. Double-click the Computer (for Windows 7 or Vista) or My Computer (for Windows XP) icon on your Windows desktop.
    2. Note the amount of free space shown in the window next to the drive letter where QuickBooks is being installed:
      • If the amount of free space is less than 1 GB, free up disk space before installing QuickBooks or install QuickBooks on a different drive.
      • If the amount of free space is greater than 1 GB, proceed with step 2.
  3. Remove invalid characters from the QuickBooks installation path:
    1. Right-click the Windows Start button and select Explore.
    2. Navigate to the path shown in the error:
      • If there are non-alphanumeric characters in the name of any folder in the installation path, right-click the folder and select Rename to remove them, and then reinstall QuickBooks.
      • If there are only alphanumeric characters in the installation path, proceed with step 3.
  4. Create a new user in Windows to rewrite any Windows registry settings that may be causing the error and log in as that user to install QuickBooks.
Note: You must be logged in as a Windows administrator or as a member of the Administrator group to add a new user.

Maybe the restore function only works with the original piece of equipment. Ouch.

You might want to contact the manufacturer of the software to see if they have a fix or solution. Good luck!

Are you sure you have it pointing to the correct drive? Maybe it's looking at the home pc drive.

Did you try to reinstall the EZ software? perhaps you accidentally removed (a part of) a program.
Then try to restor the data again.

  1. Open the windows explorer and navigate to where the backups are.
  2. Switch your view to details
  3. See which backups are the newest, don't delete them
  4. Delete the rest.
  5. Configure the Backup process to make fewer backups, like once per month, or one full, then several incremental ones.

The partition restoration process is extremely lengthy and time consuming, I would suggest trying to do it overnight and if after that it still seems stuck at 0%, then something must be wrong with the restorer.
