How big is the backup?

Are you backing up locally or across the network?

Are you compressing the backup?

Are you striping the backup?

All of these things can affect the speed of the backup.

24 hours? Your database must be well over 1 TB or your hardware is very outdated.

If you compress backup, try to estimate its size + 20%, make sure that you have enough space to hold backup file. This is most likely the reason why your backup failed at the end.

Monitor backup progress from sys.dm_exec_requests view.

For future: partition your database, set old partitions to read-only, make one full backup, and then do partial backups on read-write filegroups. This will drastically reduce your backup space, time, resources.
