could the script be overwriting the same backup file with differnet databases?
ie the db "Dictionary" gets backed up to C:\Data\Backup.bak, and then the database "SandBox" overwrites teh exact same file C:\Data\Backup.bak with it's backup, instead of being named to match the db?

without the script we can only make guesses, but it's most likely a problem int he script...bad path, overwriting the smae file, appending too the same file, or something.

Are you using a custom script or are you using a Maintenance Plan? Could be perhaps some of the backups are going to the default backup folder "<<Installation Path>>"\MSSQL10.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA" and others are going to a path you've specified?
