I am having some issues dealing with some of the back jobs that run on a SQL Server 2008 R2 machine.
When I am backing it up on a local drive nothing fails everything runs good. When I am changing it to a UNC path it fails randomly. I am getting below message when the backup is failing.

Should I delete the maintenance plan and recreate it going at same location ? or is there any thing else I need to do.

Thanks for your help.

simple, don't backup to a network drive. You'd be better off taking backups locally and then copy them to the network. Backing up directly to a network drive requires a stable network

I strongly agree. What if your network suffers an outage mid-backup?

The FAQ area of Ola Hallengren's site has some good tips http://ola.hallengren.com/frequently-asked-questions.html. While your at it consider using the full maintenace solution, at least get a copy and play around with it in test as it will give you some great pointers for creating your own jobs should you choose to go that way.
