This is the same message you saw before - and is caused by a Windows permission failure. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/810881/sl which may help you. Are you running rdiff-backup as administrator?

There is only one (admin) user on that machine.
..and the error is same on external driva and internal one.

This seems to be a long-standing problem with rdiff-backup - see:

This gives some suggestions for fixing it (at line 993 of rpath.py) but I can't recompile the Windows rdiff-backup.exe.

If you backup from your Windows machine to Linux machine and Linux-format volume (such as ext4) then I think this problem will disappear. Good luck!
