    [7Home] error received when backing up

    Hello,
    I have a system running Win 7 Home edition. To back up, I plug in an external drive, a WD passport.

    I run Windows backup, and at the conclusion I get a message "Check your backup results", with next line saying "The backup completed but some files were skipped", with an Options button.

    When I click on Options, I get an option to check skipped files, This reports these files were skipped:

    Backup encountered a problem while backing up file C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\LocalLow. ErrorThe system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002))
    Backup encountered a problem while backing up file C:\Users\Administrator\Contacts. ErrorThe system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002))
    Backup encountered a problem while backing up file C:\Users\Administrator\Searches. ErrorThe system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002))

    Would someone tell me how to fix this?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi m60Jf.
    This should be normal according to MS Support: Error code 0x8100002F and or error code 0x80070002 when you back up files in Windows 7 (click). Summary (quoted from that page):

    Re: [7Home] error received when backing up

    Hi xilolee,

    After reading the MS Support on your link with error code 0x80070002, then yes it seems normal. More specifically they give three Scenarios, and the Scenario 2 is closest to my error. Generically under Scenario 2 they posted "...<User Name> ... ". In my results that would be "Administrator".

    Is there a way to put the missing files in place (whatever they are) so the backup will give the simple message "Backup Completed Successfully".

    Other than that message it gives me the idea that I should not consider the backup to be successful. A successful message gives peace of mind.

    Thank you for your response.

    Did you read the entire

    [7Home] error received when backing up

    Your answer IS there.

    M$ does STOOPID things. They SHOULD have said "Ignoring certain files cause they do not exist" Rather than ERROR!!!!!!! UNSUCCESFUL BACKUP!!!!!!!

    Just ignore it or use something else like Macrium.
