    Backup error, some files missing

    Mods, if there's a better sub forum for this please move it and thank you tenforums doesn't have a backup and restore forum yet.

    The problem is when I do a backup, I get an error message "The backup completed but some files were skipped" I've taken a snip and included it below. Those three files are actually missing, I was not able to find them.

    I would like to resolve this minor problem, the backup completes with no problems and if I ever need it since the files are missing right now, I can't see where it would affect a restore from backup. Any help, suggestions, or idea's are welcomed, as mentioned it doesn't appear to be service affecting, but I'd like to clear it up if I can.

    My backups are set for weekly, Sunday at 7:00pm (I've just upgraded to W10 this week from Win7 and that setting followed the upgrade) after I had the backup HDD setup (deleted Win7 part, created new part for W10) I ran backup. My setting for what to backup is "Let Windows Choose" I also have an image made each time, have it set to only keep the most recent image.

    I cleared this error message after a backup, while I was in file explorer for another reason I saw these three files under C:\Users\Steve, LocalLow, Contacts, and Searches, these three folders listed below showed as missing in the backup error report.
    C:\Users\HomeGroupUser$\Contacts, and
    Thought I'd try something to see if it would fix this minor problem.

    I highlighted each folder in C:\Users\Steve that showed as missing from location C:\Users\HomeGroupUser$ in the error report, left clicked and copied the folder. Then navigated to the respective location and pasted the folder I had copied. I did this one folder at a time for all three folders in the error report.

    After doing that I ran backup, no error messages about anything so this is solved, posted the resolution in case anybody else has a similar problem, thanks to all who took their time to look at this post
