When you back up files by using Windows Backup on a computer that is running Windows 7, the backup fails and you receive the following error message:
An internal error has occurred: The parameter is incorrect: (0x80070057)
I tried the registry fix, but BU still told me Internal error 0x80070057.
So I'm stuck using the fix (replacing [,] with [.] systemwide).
Using w7 Ultimate SP1 64b Se/Sv on a C2D E8400, if that's of any relevance.
This error is really irritating

Microsoft zróbcie coś z tym!
In my computer's registry there was no key named "system" under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\; I only found one under ...\Microsoft\Windows\. Is this a mistake in the above article or do I have to create a new "system" key under \Microsoft\?
Didn't find System in the registry. But then found: reset the national settings of numbers and language.
The Fix it did not work for me ... until I rebooted, after which the backup worked just fine. Might want to mention the need to reboot in KB982736.
I have still the same problem after using automatic MS Fix.it or manually fix solution
Running HP pavilion dv6 windows 7 home premium 64 bit
Problem not solved with fix-it or "."
Cannot make backup on external hd , still get the same error .
HP dv7 , win 7 home premium
Since this folder doesn't exist, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\System, I tried these instead, each at a time:
But I still get the error message !
win7 home prem
Testar Fix-it, men inte heller det fungerar. (Den tycks skapa HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\System)
Men samma felmeddelande !
thanks for the Help
it works !!!!!!!!!!!!
I used the fix-it offered on the page, rebooted, but the error persists. :-(
I am now running without option to backup for quite some time, very annoying.
Neither their suggested 'solutions' solved the problem. How can Microsoft be so BAD at understanding, much less supporting THEIR product? I am still unable to change from weekly to monthly backups. Buy a clue.
As the above comments: first changed ','into '.' with no effect. FixIt didn't work either.
what is the solution?
I had problems to execute the backup, I had a directory junction (MKLINK) in ProgramData that made crash the backup task
It still does not work.
