I keep running into error messages while trying to run a backup using SQL server 2005. Running the backup task is working alright but when I try to run a backup of the transaction logs I keep running into errors.

Here's the error messages.

Error: 18210, Severity: 16, State: 1.
2008-10-21 13:42:11.68 spid51      BackupMedium::ReportIoError: write failure on backup device 'F:\Backup\%mybackupfile%.trn'. Operating system error 1117(The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.).

2008-10-21 13:42:11.68 Backup      BACKUP failed to complete the command BACKUP LOG %mybackuplog%. Check the backup application log for detailed messages.

Is the f: disk full?  Or close enough to full that the free space < the size of the LDF file?

No the f: drive has plenty of room, we tried other locations as well with no success.  Any suggestions?

The fact that the error message contains "%mybackupfie%" is a bit suspicious to me... it looks like it's not evaluating the environmental variable.
... or did  you just do that for posting it here?

Actually I put "%mybackupfie%" just for posting here.

I am pretty sure that the problem has been solved, since the last two backups have been successful.
One of the databases was set to "simple" in the recovery model, I changed it to "full", and made sure they were all set at the right compatibility level.  Its working alright for now.
