SBS 2003 Backups Failing

We have been having issues with our backup on a SBS 2003 server. We are trying to use the windows backup tool, but lately it has been having some issues. The only time a backup will pass successfully is when I manually run a backup. After manually running the backup hat one will fail, but the backup that runs later that night passes. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can post log files. Here are some of the errors that failing logs are showing.

Thanks in advance!!!

Are you backing up the SBS server to itself?  It looks like it lists that it is backing up to the C: drive.  Also, are you logging in as the SBS Backup User when you manually launch the backup or a different user account?  Have you run a chkdsk of the drives in your server recently?

We are backing up the server to the C:\. I setup the backup using the Backup wizzard build into windows.

Is there a reason you are backing up to the server itself?  You do realize that by backing up to itself you eliminate the majority of the benefit of backing up (hardware failure), right?  I just bring this up because I never ever ever back up a system to itself.  Try backing up to a USB hard drive at the least, then run a chkdsk on your server and then post your results.
