What exactly are you trying to backup? Can you provide more details as to what your doing?. Error 0x80070002 is
ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND
2 (0x2)

The system cannot find the file specified.

Clonezilla is a good utility to create full system images that can be easily restored. Clonezilla live usage

Hi

If you want to make a System Image to an external hard drive I'd recommend EaseUS TODO backup.
I've use it for several years and it's never failed me.

Best free backup software for Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, etc - EaseUS Todo Backup Free

It's free and the easiest backup program to use that I've ever had.

Just click the System Backup Icon, tell it where you want to save the image and click Proceed.





That's all there is to it, and it works!!!

Under the tools tab it will create a bootable restore disk in either Linux or Windows PE format.

It will boot and restore an unbootable Windows install.
For me backing up or restoring takes about 20 minutes.

It's save my tail several times. LOL

I guess you are trying to backup Windows 10 64Bit, as in your first post?
Three things you should try.

1. Type vssadmin delete shadows /all from an elevated command prompt. This should clear the cached attempts.
and,
2. Right click the start button and, in run, type services.msc Scroll down and change the "Volume Shadow Copy" to automatic.
3. Do you still have the folder "win.old. on the computer? This can cause the problem, also.
