    Backup error, some files missing

    Mods, if there's a better sub forum for this please move it and thank you *Smile tenforums doesn't have a backup and restore forum yet.

    The problem is when I do a backup, I get an error message "The backup completed but some files were skipped" I've taken a snip and included it below. Those three files are actually missing, I was not able to find them.

    I would like to resolve this minor problem, the backup completes with no problems and if I ever need it since the files are missing right now, I can't see where it would affect a restore from backup. Any help, suggestions, or idea's are welcomed, as mentioned it doesn't appear to be service affecting, but I'd like to clear it up if I can.

    My backups are set for weekly, Sunday at 7:00pm (I've just upgraded to W10 this week from Win7 and that setting followed the upgrade) after I had the backup HDD setup (deleted Win7 part, created new part for W10) I ran backup. My setting for what to backup is "Let Windows Choose" I also have an image made each time, have it set to only keep the most recent image.

  2. Windows 10 Backup missing files

    Hi there,

    so far I've noticed the missing files are .doc. There are also some pdfs. They are all located in the Documents and its subfolders. There are no error messages associated to the backup.

    Windows 10 backup recovery error

    I keep getting an error after the Windows 10 Backup Recovery (Windows 7) completes saying it skipped some files. It reports that it's missing the 'Podcasts' in C:\windows\system32\config\systemprofile. I tried created a subdirectory there by that name
    and the first backup then is okay but the next backup fails, skipping the same file. Any idea what I can do to keep from getting this error? I hate doing a system backup that comes up with a red banner warning of an error!

    Backup error, some files missing

    I cleared this error message after a backup, while I was in file explorer for another reason I saw these three files under C:\Users\Steve, LocalLow, Contacts, and Searches, these three folders listed below showed as missing in the backup error report.
    C:\Users\HomeGroupUser$\Contacts, and
    Thought I'd try something to see if it would fix this minor problem.

    I highlighted each folder in C:\Users\Steve that showed as missing from location C:\Users\HomeGroupUser$ in the error report, left clicked and copied the folder. Then navigated to the respective location and pasted the folder I had copied. I did this one folder at a time for all three folders in the error report.

    After doing that I ran backup, no error messages about anything so this is solved, posted the resolution in case anybody else has a similar problem, thanks to all who took their time to look at this post *Smile
