windows 7 backup fails with error code 0x80070003


  • Im trying to run the first backup for a Win 7 box, 64-bit, and Windows Backup starts to run, then immediately stops with a message "check your backup, the last backup did not complete successfully" with Error Code: 0x80070003.    This happens on a usb connected external drive that has been verified to work, and it happens if I choose what files to backup or let windows choose the files to backup.
