Backups keep failing

Microsoft Windows

I ran a chkdsk on the last restart, but they still keep failing on System
State. (See log below) All the data partitions appear to be backed up.

First check the obvious are you running out of space on the backup device?

Check your SBS with the SBS Best Practices Analyzer

Yes...it is formatted with NTFS. It's been working for 1year w/o any issues.
I think Russ may be right sinc I recently added a new user and imported their
local profile to the SBS domain.

Thanks for the reply!
