Normally, this issue happens if db is having some corrpution, first option is to repair the db and try backup again, it is a time consuming process and required downtime for all users, second option it to create new db and move the mailboxes. Fresh db will be free from any corruption. Second option doesn't have downtime for all users.

You will need to use Eseutil to determine the health of the database, the database will need to be dismounted to run the health check.

Thanks for your suggestions, I'm going to run a health check this evening and see what results I get from that, failing that I'll move the mailboxes per first post.  I'll report back asap.
