As suggested in the FAQs, I am trying to do a backup before anything else. Doing it from TomTom HOME, I get an error with the first file it tries to backup autorun.inf and the backup stops. When I try copying via Explorer, I manage to copy everything except autorun.inf which is says is in use. I know what autorun.inf is for but I cannot see that it is running nor can I see anything relevant in Processes in Task Manager.

Any ideas, please?

Don't use HOME to back-up your device. Try disconnecting it, shutting down HOME completely (perhaps even a reboot) and starting again. Make the back-up directly from Explorer without restarting HOME.

Alternatively, if you still have problems, perhaps you can make a manual copy of this particular file. For information, mine (from a GO300) contains the following lines:

[autorun]
icon=tomtom.ico
action=TomTom GO
label=TomTom GO

My 910 has this in autorun.inf Confused

[autorun]
action=Run TomTom HOME
open=InstallTomTomHOME.exe
label=TomTom
icon=tomtom.ico
[DeviceInstall]
#This section is empty; autorun will not install device drivers to your PC.

[Edited to add]
I should say that my Day 1 Backup does, but I haven't got it on the Device because I don't want HOME starting up every time I connect to the PC. Smile

you can stop home running on start up by running msconfig and unchecking it from the start up tab

Indeed, and then it doesn't need the autorun.inf File.
