    the D drive on the server may be full
    You may have too many backups out there?

    Just a thought.

    I did have little space there but I blew away some old backups and free up some space. Looking at previous stuff it has enough space but its still coming back with the same error.

    check the event viewer on the server for both system and application errors.

    Thanks I got the issue resolved. I have deleted 2 of 5 previous backups and it worked. But it still had more than enough space before that. So I got it figured oout for now.
    Thanks
