When I try to create a back up I always get this failed error

What can I do to fix this?
What is this .wine/drive_c/windows/profiles/ thing?
I don't even have a file named My Videos...

Thanks

I beg to differ: you certainly do, but Spotlight isn't finding it. Not atypical.

Use Finder's "Go To Folder" command to open

/Users/ALEXIS/.wine/drive_c/windows/profiles/ALEXIS/

Once you're there, you'll see the My Videos link/alias, which is damaged. Delete it.
