NT Backup errors

I seem to be running into trouble with some of our servers running NT backup.  Every time one of the scheduled full backups run there seems to be a problem.  It will run for a few hours and then it won't successfully complete.

Error: The device reported an error on a request to write data to media.
Error: C: is not a valid drive, or you do not have access.

I am also getting a code 1f

The differentials are working just fine and are being backed up at the same location.

What brand/type of server are you running? I'm seen Dell PowerEdge servers pop up with this type of tape drive error, but only in Windows Server 2003.

Are you backup on tape or disk? There are bugs using disk targets in combination with (file system) compression, when reaching 40 GB.

We are backing up on disk.  When what reaches 40 GB?  The disk that we are backing up on?

Actually I am running a full backup right now, on one of the ones that failed last time, and it looks to be about 31 GB when it is done.  What can be done here?

Ok, so we have to follow another branch ... Does your eventlog tell you more about IO failures?
