You might want to try running chkdsk per the directions in this thread on the error you report:  https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/eabc0db5-03ce-4079-8f30-ef88ce8477ce/backup-failed-error-code-0x80070017?forum=windowsbackup 


There are a number of other potential solutions as well.  A web search on "Windows Backup 0x80070017" turns these up.
