Event ID 50, 51, 57 \Device\Harddisk1 during a paging operation

While running a backup on a SBS 2003 I get an event ID 50, 51 and 57

Is my case the \Device\Harddisk1 is the USB backup drive. Does this mean the backup drive is failing?

Here are the full event ID details

Check to see if there is a paging file being used on this drive, if so remove it.

How does your backup run?

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Is there a paging file on this USB drive?

Does the backup report as being complete in the console? If so attach the report.

Where do I check if the drive has a paging file on the drive?

The backup reports as complete

If the backup reports as complete and you can complete a test restore then I would assume the data is fine (but at some point do a complete restore to check).

You check for paging files under the system properties in my computer, advance, under performance click settings, then advance tab, click change button under virtual memory, then every mapped letter is listed and tells you what paging file is any is assigned to the drive.

From what I found out so far it is the USB port that is cousing this.

I get error 51 and 57 and this happen on mondays around 930-10 pm. It says disk 3 and it said once disk 4. Dell ran every single test and said the server is good no issues. The problem is I dont have a disk 3 and 4. Nor do I have a disk 2. I have disk 0 and 1 which consist of 4 hard drives on a RAID 5. I am running Acronis for backup software and I think this error comes when it run a full backup of my VM's but not when it does incrementals. Any idea on this?

I ended up moving my backup USB drives over to another server so I never found a solution for this problem.

Is this an issue that Acronis is causing and is it serious?
