My PC tried to run its weekly backup tonight, but failed. This is the first
time this has happened - the last successful backup was on 4th February
Running Vista Home Premium, and I back up my C Drive files onto a second
internal hard drive.
This drive has two partitions (Z and F). Z is just used for backups, and
there is still 176GB free out of 238GB on the partition.
The error occurs only a minute or so into the backup attempt. The error
message that comes up is:
'The backup did not complete successfully.
An error occurred. The following information might help you resolve the
The system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002)'
Googling the problem shows others have had it, but no definitive resolution
I have tried deleting the backup task from task manager, moving the existing
backup volumes into a temporary sub directory, and creating a whole new
shadow backup from scratch in the root of Z. However, even this fails with
the same error. I'm beginning to suspect a registry problem.
Is this a known Vista bug? Will I have to wait for SP1 to resolve it?
