    Backup errors

    I have been using Windows 7 backup system to backup Windows 10 without difficulty until installing the anniversary update. Since then I have received these errors after doing the backup.

    Backup encountered a problem while backing up file C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\Pictures\Camera Roll. ErrorThe system cannot find the path specified. (0x80070003))

    Backup encountered a problem while backing up file C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\Documents. ErrorThe system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002))

    Hi, several experts here find the built-in Backup and Restore unreliable at times.
    You are recommended to try the much more fully featured and flexible Macrium reflect (free) + its boot medium.

    Some discussion here on your error msg which I've found for you:
    Windows Backup fails with 0x80070002: - Super User

    Since the Anniversary Upgrade was basically a full upgrade, moving the files during that process may have had some effect. Also, using a new build may cause problems when trying to create a backup image in the same partition and the old process had used.

    Do you have any space available in another partition you could try? Have you checked to make sure the files in question are there?

    And why are the folders referenced in in the System 32 folder? Had you moved you personal files prior to the upgrade?
