  • SBS 2008 missed scheduled Backup

    The standard SBS 2008 backup is scheduled to run on a client's server at 8pm every night. This had been running with no major problems for nearly three years. The next backup time always shows up correctly on the SBS console when checked earlier in the day. The problem is that the backup schedule is being missed intermittently with no error showing in the backup history. This has started in the last couple of months.

    I've checked the Task Scheduler's entry for the backup and all looks OK.

    I can select the "Backup now" option on the SBS console and the backup will run successfully. So there is no problem with the external USB drives to which the backup is directed.

    Has anyone got any suggestions as to what might have gone wrong and/or what I might do to fix this problem?
