This blog is focused on a simple but effective lesson.
Descriptions about BSOD error codes are from my own opinion based on 1.5+ year BSOD debugging experience.
I don’t know much about DPC’s, wait operations, attach processes and yields. While analyzing the issue I have not been able to analyze the related dump in-depth. Information provided could be incorrect, but are from my own thoughts about the situation.

The problem description:
I have previously backed up successfully without issues. Last night I tried backing up, expecting to see successful completion in the morning, but instead I found my computer had restarted.

I have a Dell Precision M4800 running Windows 10. Was attempting to back up to a Seagate Backup Plus 5TB drive. Same hardware as I have used successfully in the past.

I’ve attached the output of the Log Collector and a photo of the BSOD.

Will much appreciate any help in tracking this down and eliminating it.
