" Backup completed but some files were skipped "

Hello, when i perform a Windows Backup, it nearly completes it then the progress bar turns red and it says " Backup completed but some files were skipped " so when i view the skipped files it displays

  • Backup encountered a problem while backing up file C:\Users\Mcx1-SLAYER2\Contacts. Error:(The system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002))

    Backup encountered a problem while backing up file C:\Users\Mcx1-SLAYER2\Searches. Error:(The system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002))

    Can you please help and tell me how to fix this so i can run a Backup successfully ?

    Will a complete system restore fix this issue ?

Answer
Here are a couple of suggestions:
a) Reboot into Safe Mode, then perform the backup.
b) Ignore the warnings. The files appear to belong to some game, hence their loss would be of little consequence.
