It can occur due to the storage failure. If you are trying to Backup the whole system at a period, then I would suggest you try it again on only useful files, not on the OS.

You can also check your router security settings. Try again after disabling the firewall and antivirus.

There seems to be a lot of users experiencing that error when copying big files. The problem gets triggered when you are copying files with huge file sizes to a portable storage device or to a network drive and then you will receive “The semaphore timeout period has expired. (0x80070079)”.

The main cause of the error is that when you are copying big files to another computer over the network or to a portable drive then a network problem happened, Windows doesn’t retry the network connection which results to a connection timing out. To fix the problem, try disabling your firewall and antivirus program and then try copying again. See if it works.

If the destination drive uses the FAT32 file system, it can also be the cause of the problem. If the drive supports it, try changing the file system of the destination drive from FAT32 to NTFS.
