Hi Marjorie,

The error occurs if the back up of a library containing the custom folders is located on user profile.
To resolve this error follow the steps below:
1) In the 'Control Panel', open 'Backup and Restore'


2) In the backup section, Click 'Change Settings'
3) In the 'Set up backup' dialog box. Click 'Next'
4) Select the files you want to backup
5) Expand Data files, Click libraries, Additional locations
6) Click to clear 'AppData', 'Contacts', 'Searches' checkboxes
7) Click 'Save settings and exit'
8) Click 'Back up now' to perform new backup
9) Restart the system when backup is completed
