    Windows 10 Backup did not complete successfully


    Backup encountered a problem while backing up file C:\Users\My Computer\Desktop\New folder. ErrorThe system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002))
    Backup encountered a problem while backing up file C:\Users\My Computer\Desktop\SD 13.5.12\105SSCAM. ErrorThe system cannot find the path specified. (0x80070003))
    Backup skipped backing up E:\SD 7.9.14\DCIM\100_PANA as it is on the backup target.


    I would like to know what does seem to be the problem and how can be fixed, can I still use the backup and system image to restore image and files if needed?

    Hi, it's good that you are using imaging- too many don't. You may think I'm evading the issue, but there is a steady trickle of reports here on Backup and Restore (Windows 7) which is what I will assume you are using.

    A number of experienced people here have come to believe it is somewhat unreliable. Better solutions are found with 3rd party disk imaging such as Macrium Reflect (free/commercial) + its boot medium + external storage.

    - more reliable
    - maintained and updated quickly with good support
    - much more feature-rich
    - better platform support
    - can be built into Windows boot

    I agree. I stuck manfully with Windows Backup and Restore (WBR) but found it was a little erratic. After being pressed on this forum about Macrium I am now using it - daily backup of an image + occasional Rescue Media Recovery and Boot Menu Options. Interestingly, I found when asking for help on this forum about WBR, there has been dwindling response over the last year or two. That convinced me!

    Thanks for the reply. Believe it or not I do have macrium on my computer and I have used it before. I am now going to try it again but more seriously this time.

    Stop Windows update service may helps.

    I'd also recommend getting a third party tool like Macrium Reflect, Paragon Backup & Restore or even Paragon Hard Disk Manager, Acronis True Image... They are all far more reliable than the built in solution and also more flexible and feature rich.
