I am having a problem with backing up large databases to a network device. SQL Backup with fail with this error: "Insufficient system resources exist to complete the request". I searched through this forum and found several others with the same problem but it looked to me that the only resolution was to remove a /3gb switch from the SQL Server that is being backup up. I also tried to backup locally (as recommended) and it still failed with the same error. Is removing this switch the only resolution? As with one of the posters to this forum, backing up to a local drive and using copyto will not work for us.
