Angels have the Phone Box
Hi ve1drg and welcome to TenForums.
I would first install Macrium Reflect Free and make an "image" of your entire hard drive, and then the recovery media.
Once that is completed, open an administrative command prompt and run sfc /scannow. This will tell you if you have any integrity violations in your system files. If you find that some errors are reported and fixed, you might try running the Windows Backup process again. However, you may just want to stick with Macrium Reflect for your system images, and turn on File History for your files backup.
