Windows 7: Backup error: The handle is invalid

02 Dec 2009   #1

XP Pro
Backup error: The handle is invalid

I have setup the backup utility to use my network drive and create an image and copy the my doc folder. When I run the utility it will go through it's process for a long time before providing the following error information:
Check your backup
One of the backup files could not be created.
Details: The handle is invalid.
Error code: 0x8078002A
I am unfamiliar with what the error means and when I go to the network drive the backup zip files say they are also corrupt. Has anyone come across this, or have an idea as to what the problem may be?
Thanks in advance, hopefully I have provided all the necessary information.
