Backup error

Let me begin by saying hi to everyone.
My computer specs that I typed in last night was changed today. I previously had windows ultamate 64bit but it is changed to 32bit. I was doing my first backup after installation and had this error. "The system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002))" can someone tell me how to fix this? I am very new to windows7.
Thanks in advance to your replies.

Truthfully, it could mean several things. There should be a log or error button that will tell you what the error is. It happened to me once and it was simply a folder I had changed, everything else was backed up.

And also, welcome to the forums.

As essenbe says it is often caused by deleting or moving a folder that is defined in the backup since it was configured. The solution to this is to go through the backup configuration procedure again.
