    Skipped Files in Windows 7 Back up

    I use the built in back up in windows 7. I keep getting a message saying that it skipped some files. I will post the exact message at the end of this post.
    the files are related to a album I downloaded but deleted long ago. I have searched the location it indicates but there is nothing there.
    Just wondering if anyone can help me figure out where these files might be or how to make this message go away.

    message from windows back up

    When I used Windows 7 when it first came out, I got this error when I deleted a file from the list of files and folders defined for backup. As the link Clint provided states, it can safely be ignored. The only way I was able to get rid of it was to redefine the backup list.

    Clint and Jerry
    Thanks for the info. I tried the steps in the scenario 2 that Clint supplied the link to but no go. I had also read that if you create a new folder with the name of the missing one it would fix it but again it didn't work.
    I had rightly assumed it wasn't doing any harm but I am somewhat anal when it comes to things like that.
    I just do not understand why it is trying to back up files that have long been deleted.

    I understand where you are coming from but I don't think you can do much about it. That's one of the reasons i changed to a different backup program.

    Acronis True Image, a paid app but there are good free choices as well - Easeus ToDo Backup and Macrium Reflect
