    Help - whenever I try to backup my files onto an external hard drive using
    backup and restore centre in Vista, I get the message 'The system cannot find
    the path specified (0x80070003)'. All data backed up fine the first time I
    used the drive, but nothing will back up now..... any suggestions???
