Backup will not complete (0x80070002))

I have had many failed attempts at backingup my pc and keep getting the following error message
"Backup encountered a problem while backing up file C:\Users\Sean\Desktop\2013-01 (Jan). Error The system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002))"
Having carried out disk checks, defrags and registry repairs I am totally lost.

Hello e11even, and welcome to Seven Forums.

That error means that the C:\Users\Sean\Desktop\2013-01 (Jan) folder you have included to be backed up no longer exists on your computer.

You should be able to use the Change settings option (step 4 in tutorial below) to setup your backup again without the missing folder being included anymore. Afterwards, you should be able to create backups without getting this error.

Backup User and System Files

Hope this helps,
Shawn

C:\Users\Sean\Desktop\2013-01 (Jan). Is that a file/folder/or even shortcut?

What scenario is relevant? I assume scenario 3?
