Hello jhust,

 

When posting a question asking for help it's always a good idea to include what make / model computer you are using.

 

In the case of the error message you are receiving it is due to Windows backup task not working as intended.


Try the steps outlined in this Microsoft Answers page

System backup error [0x80041321]

 

1. Go to task scheduler (run taskschd.msc from RUN dialog OR from a command-prompt) 
2. Navigate under Task Scheduler Library->Microsoft->Windows->WindowsBackup folder
3. Delete AutomaticBackup task
4. Delete Windows Backup Monitor task
5. Try to re-configure file backup

In case you do not find these tasks in task scheduler UI, suggest doing the following: 
1. Open an elevated command-prompt
2. cd %windir%\system32\tasks\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsBackup
3. del AutomaticBackup
4. del "Windows Backup Monitor"
5. Try to re-configure file backup
