W2016: System State Backup Failed

Windows 2016 System State Backup was failing with the following error.

    “The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect

Log showed me the following error:

    Error in backup of C:\windows\\systemroot\ during enumerate: Error [0x8007007b] The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

Resolution:

It is tough to find the broken registry and file but it is important to understand the error.

This error is not about the backup location or SYSVOL and NTDS files but it is about the register.

So, I simply took the system state backup on the other DC.

Important is to move on and save time in today’s era.
