Windows 7: "Phantom" Files

04 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1
"Phantom" Files

When running System Backup I repeatedly get a message that some 'files' were skipped.
The folders referred to are:
C:\Users\MyName\Saved Games
A detailed search shows no such folders. In addition, the E: drive was recently fully reformatted.

Any ideas?

If you are doing a selective file backup rather than letting windows decide then you can get this problem if you delete any folders that you originally put in the backup. The way to stop it is to go through the change settings procedure again and save the result. Any folders that are missing will be dropped from the backup.
