I am having this exact problem after having run this system for 3 years. Sage refer me to the windows articles all of which I have run and have made no difference. Now they say my system is not suitable for networking sage, afetr it has been fine for years.

HHmmmm...I am getting the same error on some of the computers I support when backing up using Backup4all. Common thread here seems to be failing back ups. Can either of you confirm when your problem started occuring. I think mine was about a month ago give or take.

It is apparently an error to do with settings, see windows article 330174.
Unfortunatly none of these settings have solved my problems.

I am now thinking it may be that my network switch/ setup cannot manage such large files, the file size is constantly enlarging as we add data.
Can you split your back ups or compress them?

My setup had been working fine for over a year. The only thing that has changed is the windows updates and the file sizes. My file size increase has been rather small however. I do use a medium compression since it saves some time over the full compression. I'm running over a 1000baseT network. Incrementals take about 2 hours and full back ups about five hours. I am getting sporatic success as well sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.

Thanks for the article I will check it out.

I have got around this problem in Sage by reducing the file size being used. I took several backups of data and ther cleared the audit trail to get the file down to a size that the network was happy with. I have solved the problem backing up emails on to the network by taking them directly in to a portable harddrive. It seems that however capable your network swithch or computer there will always be an upper limit to the size file it likes to send. And when taking backups corruption is not a risk we can afford to take.
