    That error comes up with no description anywhere I have looked.  One thing that I have found to help correct various backup errors is to remove the backup job and reschedule it.

    If there is nothing on the external target drive, can you move it to a workstation and verify you can format it NTFS in disk management, then copy some file to and from then return it to the SBS and add it as a backup target again?  Also, the maximum size for a single target VHD is 2 TB, so you want to be sure that the *total* of your volumes to be backed up does not exceed the size of the target and or 2 TB, whichever is less.
