I seem to always get this error when I do my backups, any input on this would be great

Code:

Could you upload your expanded Disk Management using your Snipping Tool. If you are not familiar with that, use this tutorial. Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums Thanks,

Is this what you need. The backup drive is my K drive

That is the top half of what is needed. Here is what mine looks like.

It looks like your error has to do with SP1. Go to this Microsoft link and get the fix.
You receive a "0x80070002" or "0x80070003" error code after you download an update from Windows Update, from Microsoft Update, or from Windows Server Update Services == One more thing that does not have anything to do with the error but needs to be corrected. Drive F: is marked as "active". It should not be. Use this tutorial to mark as "inactive".
Partition - Mark as Inactive
Let us know if this clears things up.

Ok thanks the Drive F is now sorted out. I will see if I get that error on the backups when it next runs

You need to apply the fix in the link I gave you to correct the error. Making the F Drive inactive will not help that problem.
