I have configured the built in backup utility in MS 2003 server. It continues to fail after 3.99 gig. This is happening on 3 of our servers. It is backing up to a external hard drive. Trying to find out if there is some size limit that needs to be changed to allow the backup to finish and not stop at 3.99 gig.

Are the external drives formatted as NTFS?
