Getting OS 240 error during database backup. : LUSENET : DBAzine : One Thread

We have several SQLServer 7.0 databases on the same NT server. The backups for the databases are directed to a disk on another NT server.

Backups for several small databases run successfully, these databases are 200 or 300MB, plus master and msdb. The 2 large databases that are 4 and 5GB run quite awhile and the output file size is about the size of the database when the backup abends. I found an OS 240 error in the event log. The large backups complete successfully to a disk on the same NT server the databases are on.
