Windows 7: Windows 7 backup fails if last backup location is deleted

Windows 7 backup fails if last backup location is deleted

I had a Windows 7 backup of my personal folders on a external drive and deleted this backup by accident. This backup is still referenced by backup some where in the registry, and running backup again the same settings caused the backup to fail when creating a shadow copy with a unknown file error 0x80070002.
I've followed some advice and restored the Windows 7 backup to its default settings and deleted system restore points but the problem is when looking at files in my personal folders and looking at previous versions of these files I find references to the deleted backup files. (I had expected that restoring backup to its default state would have removed these references).
I am looking for a way to remove the references to the deleted backup so I can run backup again, so is there any way to do this and restore backup to a factory default state?
At the moment backup fails with the same error even if I changed the location to backup and the files to backup.
