Error when backing up to sbs2008

Hi All

My sbs2008 backups are sometimes failling with this error below. Does anybody have any ideas of how to resolve it.

Creation of the shared protection point timed out.

Hi:

There are dozens of references to this on the net... have you done a search?

Here is one:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956136

I ask because I don't like to point you to things you have already done.
Are you using the built in backup?

What type drive (model number and vendor) are you using to back up?

Have you run a SBS best practices analyzer?

ASKER

I am using the built in backup. There are references to the backup running successfully just before this error pops up in the sbs console window. The backups have been running successfully for a while this is a recent event.
