Expert,

I have on DTS job it run once a day in 5 am, I checked it during day time 2pm, the status is excuting but the job history for that day is empty. The status on excuting for 2 days then started to run. I checked disk space, it is no space problem.  All backup is not in 5 am. I don't know what caused the problems.

Can you help?

check in you sql agent - properties -> how many records to keep - maybe you need to make this number bigger

I have seen this happen when you have two different jobs (not steps) scheduled at the same time.
