While doing a Complete PC Backup in Windows 7 I received dialog reading:
The backup did not complete successfully.
Open the Backup and Restore Control Panel to view settings
From there I clicked the Options button.
Windows Backup: Troubleshooting Options
Check your backup
Windows Backup encountered invalid MediaID.bin file on the drive where the backup is saved. Restore from a different backup or delete the MediaID.bin file and try to create another backup. The MediaID.bin file can be found under \MediaID.Bin & \\MediaId.Bin.
I deleted the file in question (MediaID.bin) from X:\ (one of the drives being backedup( and tried the backup again.
Next I was presented with a dialog that read:
Windows Backups: Troubleshooting Options
Check your backup
The system connot find the file specified.
Try to run backup again
Change backup settings
Backup Time: 2/10/2010 12:17 PM Backup location: FreeAgent Drive (E:) Error code: 0x80070002
Additionally I checked the error log and I found this:

Viewed the following document: http://blogs.technet.com/filecab/archive/2008/03/12/common-causes-and-solutions-to-backup-system-restore-and-complete-pc-backup-problems-updated.aspx searched for 0x80070002 and tried and follow the directions...
I noticed that none of the profiles was missing a ProfileImagePath, I also noticed that the people commenting on the page said that they weren't missing it either.
I'm currently trying the backup again, but this time I unchecked all of the user's profiles and opted only to backup the two drives X: and C: on to E:\
I'll let you know what happens.
