    Backup error


      When I try to backup my catalog in Premiere Elements 12 I get an error message that reads "Error encountered while writing disc ..".

          Welcome to the forum.


          1. What OS version are you running?
          2. Are you running with FULL administrative privileges, and especially for the destination HDD?
          3. What is the I/O setup on your computer, i.e. the number of physical HDD's, their speed, controller/connection type, and how they are being employed?
          4. To which HDD are you attempting to do the BU?
          5. How much defragmented free-space is available on that HDD?


          Good luck, and let us know a bit more, please.

            Let us start with some basic information and build from there.


            What computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 12 running on?


            Are you trying to do a Full Backup or an Incremental Backup?


            What is your destination drive and what type of disc are you using?


            Looking forward to further details.


            Thank you.
