  1. I recently upgraded my windows 7 HP laptop Model 2000, 4 GB to Windows 10. While trying to backup my files, the files never successfully completed, and I got this message: "Backup encountered a problem while backing up file." Error (The system cannot find the path specified. (0x80070003).
    It appears that when I do a backup-it will backup the Windows 7 files.
    I tried going to Microsoft support, and also other means, with no luck on how to fix. Can you help? Thank you.

    The upgrade backs up Windows 7 in the unlikely event there's a serious problem and you need to downgrade the OS. If you want to backup your new Windows 10 installation you'll have to find another way
