SBS 2008 backup

I am using Backup and in my event logs I see that it started and failed. But, I do have a backup, so not sure where to find the one that is causing this log:

Event Details:    
Backup started at ''2011-03-13T08:00:06.790Z'' failed as another backup or recovery is in progress. Please re-run backup.

I do have a valid backup. I restored a file that was created yesterday and backed up last night, restored that file this morning, so my backup is working. It appears that I have a second backup scheudle overlapping the valid backup schedule?  Maybe?  Where do I find this other backup schedule? I went to Windows SBS Console and in "Backup and Server Storage" there is only one backup in the list.

check how long the last successful backup took to complete. maybe the previous backup didn't complete yet.

This seems odd.  In the Event Viewer the Error is listed as 3/3/2011 at 3:00:08 am.  When I click on it, the details shows 9:00:08 am...

Backup started at '3/3/2011 9:00:08 AM' failed as another backup or recovery is in progress. Please re-run backup.

This error started on 2/23/2011 and there are two of them every day.  The actual backup seems Ok, I think.  But both errors happen at 3am when the backup runs and the detail shows 9am for some reason.

Sorry, don't know how to check how long the backup takes to complete.  Where would I go to see that?

I see it now.  Takes about 5 minutes on most days.  There is one day a week it performs a full backup and that takes about 20 minutes
