I am using Maintnance Plan to do nightly backups. I have one database that for some reason the job shows that it's executing put it never finishes. The database is full recovery mode. At fist I had several databases in the maintnance plan, but then I saw that this one database was not completing, so I removed it and placed it in it's own maitnance plan. It runs for days and never finishes. However, when I do a backup from query analyzer, the back-up completes fine. Any ideas?
