It's not good that no decent errormessage is shown, I need to change that in a new version.

Maybe you have choosen a directory without write permissions? Or an external device which isn't connected anymore? However, like you say, it can be an issue with your anti-virus which blocks certain operations.

If it's manual backup through the menu File=>Backup, you can choose the directory there before clicking "Backup".

If it's an automatic backup when closing the aplication, you'll have to change it in the preferences dialog.

Hmm, Documents & Settings should always be writeable. i'll make sure a better error message comes up in the next version.

Do you have enabled development version updates? See preferences=>Advanced. There is a 1.9.0 test version which might show up for you.
