Windows 7: Backup failed;Files can't be open;How can I delete all/some?

04 Sep 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 - 32 bit
 
 
Backup failed;Files can't be open;How can I delete all/some?

Just finished clean reinstall of W7Ult SP1. Installed HP media smart server(comes with Windows Home Server software package for management).
Attempted backups but they have failed. This PC has Never been backed up to my knowledge (we're talking 5 years maybe).
I do not need to keep any old factory images etc from prior to reinstall date (Sept 1) and my music library is largely on Itunes now with pictures also on CD's (stored in my desk).

I'd like to be able to complete a successful backup but I don't know how to delete the bad portion (clusters) as Windows can't open them.

How can I delete the bad portions OR how can I just delete the whole thing and take and start fresh with my new system?
