Yep. Without the rest of the error message, I can't even hazard a guess. Jeff is probably right (says Grant all the time).
Thanks, Grant. I'm humbled but I'm probably not right nor even close on this one... backups normally do a pre-allocation and check of space prior to starting, so running out of space at near 13% complete probably isn't it. It was a total swag on my part and I probably should have just said it's impossible to tell without extra info.
On a slightly different note, If I'm reading the log output in the original post correctly is possibly a bit of an unrelated but seriously important problem built into the maintenance plan... it would appear that they delete old backups before it's been confirmed that the new backup(s) have been successful.
