Windows 7: Backup Error 0x80070002 - The system cannot find the file specified.

Backup Error 0x80070002 - The system cannot find the file specified.

I was going add to thread:

Error 0x80070002 when attempting to backup files

but I got a response indicating I should start a new thread because that thread was so old.

The next to last post asks the question:

type "mountvol /r" followed by "mountvol /e" I'll be able to run backup without having a partition letter assigned to the 'reserved system partition'?

The answer is yes

I tried that and it did not work for me. So I rebooted, assigned a drive letter to the partition as suggested higher up in that thread. When I did that the backup succeeded. I removed the drive letter, rebooted and have tried several backups. All have been successful.

I don't know exactly what worked. In essence I did what schwendemann did in the reverse order. So I'm thinking that either assigning the drive letter causes some area that has gotten corrupted to be rebuilt or you need both actions but the order doesn't matter.
