Trying to backup my system to a WD Elements external drive-last month got "The backup location cannot be found" (0x81000006) - yesterday, tried again, thought it was completing (took a good 5 hours) - got message "backup completed but some files skipped" & "the backup location cannot be found" . I am unable to see what files were skipped-nothing in notepad and I cannot change/cancel/delete schedule or settings via backup and restore (frozen buttons), also getting error message 0x8100002f with the backup cannot be found message. Can/should I delete/edit the task via task scheduler? What about the errors? I do not know if I have any Custom library folders. I have Windows 7 x64 Home Prem/IE9. I seem to be backup challenged :censored: . My 1TB external hard drive did reduce in size from 630.59GB to 554.00GB after my backup attempt yesterday-so I think something transferred-maybe a lot of zip files (I believe that's what I saw in the external drive).
