Morning chaps.

I have an odd issue whereby SBS backup fails on its nightly schedule but if I click 'Backup Now' it works everytime...

I can't actually see any errors in the above? the only thing the event log shows (Application log), at the same time as this is but may be coincidence:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Event: 1524
Windows cannot unload your classes registry file - it is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unloaded when it is no longer in use.

Thought I'd post here as it might be a simple solution before I 'rip into it' :)
