Windows 7: Win 7 backup failing with Error 0x8078002A

Win 7 backup failing with Error 0x8078002A

I have replaced an old external USB drive with a replacement made up of a new 1Tb SATA HDD and USB caddy. Backups ran perfectly with the old drive but now I get an error 0x8078002A every time I try to back up.

I ran the command sfc /scannow at the command prompt which returned this message - "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are in c:\windows\logs\CBS\CBS.log"

The contents of the log file mean nothing to me I'm afraid and wondered if anyone on here could help?
