Windows 7: Cannot backup hard drive

Cannot backup hard drive

When I try to perform a backup of my 40GB hard drive onto my 1TB hard drive I get the error message "The system cannot find the path specified.", with error code "0x800700003".

I boot off the 40GB hard drive and both are being used so I have no clue what the error code means. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
