    Dell Studio XPS Laptop - Win 7 Home Premium - Intel i5 - 4 GB Ram

    At 97% completed, after 2:40 of back up time, Backup reported complete but a file skipped.

    "Backup encountered a problem while backing up file C:\Users\Paul\Desktop\2010_06_14. Error:(The system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002))"

    That's probably because C:\Users\Paul\Desktop\ is empty!

    My Documents Library contains three locations:

    My Documents (13)
    c:\Users\Paul

    Public Documents (2)
    C:\Users\Public

    2010_06_14 (Empty)
    C:\Users\Paul\Desktop

    I cannot delete the empty file/Folder above, C:\Users\Paul\Desktop\

    Would someone please tell me what is going on here and how I can successfully complete a Windows 7 Backup?

    Thanks,
    Irish

    If you think the empty folder is the problem try adding something in notepad to it.

    Joe, All I know is what Windows is telling (or not telling) me. I don't know who or what created that folder, which apparently is causing the error. Wait a minute...I was just able to delete the offending folder and remove that location in the library. I'll try a new backup and see what happens. Irish.
