When you go to "scheduled tasks" and view the properties of the backup task, is it set to "daily" and  "every 1 day"?
On the "Settings" tab, is the "Stop the task if it runs for" set to a low number or something higher like 72 hours?
Also, does the backup throw an event log item during the time you have the backup scheduled?

The backup is a weekly backup that is set to run every Thursday on to tape.  

By default the task is set to stop after 72 hours.

Event Viewer: Under the system log : it shows that about a half hour into the job the removable storage service entered a stopped state.

under the application log:  at the same time removable storage is stopping I see the following event ,  
Event id : 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.  

Any Ideas ?

Do you have any application on this machine that runs on Thursdays, ie weekly virus scan?

What it soulds like is that because the ntbackup couldn't get a lock (maybe because of a running program accessing files?) it will fail. I'd look to the scheduled events, failing that some other program that is running at the same time (again, likely a weekly update of some sort). Look to the event log, system and application for items running just before your sceduled backup.
