When I search the config folder I do find COMPONENTS files, but the names are different.  I'm assuming these files change on a continual basis and so more than likely can't exclude them w/out excluding the entire config folder.  I would think that there is a setting required to accomodate these ever changing file names. 

I've done my searching and have not found anything dealing with the above specific issue.  Any ideas as to how to mitigate this problem from continuing?

Do you use Advanced Open File Option in your job? If not, turn it on and check your backups to see if this happens again.

If these files/directories do not exists, then these are orphaned entries in the registry from some installation/uninstall.  You either live with the error messages or put a dummy file/directory with the same name in the same location.
