Everyday at the same time Exchange 5.5 slows down and users receives a message that Exhange is retrieving data.  I check to see what schedules are check, from what I can tell there is nothing set up.  I check the routing calculation schedule, the storage waring schedule, off-line book schedule and I don't have circular logging enable.  Where else should I look to see if an option is being schedule?

Also, I see a message in teh error log, event ID 104, MSExchangeIs (378) The database engine has stopped the backup procedure.  Any ideas?

I would start by making sure there isn't a backup scheduled.

I have no back up schedule running on the server at that time.  Any other ideas?

The event is telling you that a backup procedure was stopped, so one had to be running.  Remember, you can backup Exchange remotely so you may need to look at servers other than the exchange server.

How can I determine what time the on-line back up is ran?  I only have one Exchange Server; I only have one Enterprise back system which is BackUpExpress which runs at 6:00 pm.m

You should have an event ID 102 when the backup begins.  You could also run a netstat -an when the backup is running to maybe see which server is performing the backup.  Either that or a netmon trace.  It may be another server besides your enterprise backup system.
