NT Backup not performing scheduled jobs

I am running Windows Server 2003 and my previous jobs have stopped backing up each night.  As a result, I deleted all of them from Accessories, System Tools, Scheduled Tasks.  I then proceeded to create new jobs and that hasn't worked either.  When I look in the reports it tells me

"The saved selection file "NT\NTBackup\data\backupnamename.bks" cannot be found."
 
I am saving the bakcups to a backup server through lan.  The drive is mapped, there are no problems accessing the folder.  The only thing I can think of is that when I created the job, I selected the option to "Overwrite to existing Backup".  There is no backup with that name in the folder currently.  Can it be looking for that backup name first to overwrite?  It shouldn't work this way should it?  

Thanks.

hi,
the overwrite option isnt the problem.
i think the pc is logged out, when performing the backup. so it could be possible, that the network drive isnt mapped at this moment.....
or the permissions to the folder, you want to save your backup arent right

I can still access the shared backup computer folder via Win Server 2003, and the permissions have always been fine.  If I do a manual backup it works fine.  The scheduled jobs are having a problem.
