    Could you please show the SQL Backup backup command you are using, and also a log file from any of the backups that ran using that command? SQL Backup generates a log file for each process that it runs. The default folder where the logs are stored is C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataRed GateSQL BackupLog<instance name> on Windows 2003 and older, and C:ProgramDataRed GateSQL BackupLog<instance name> on Windows Vista and newer.
