SBS 2008 Backup

I'm getting an error in Server backup, that's very cryptic:

One of the backup files could not be created.

One of the backup files could not be created.
Server Backup did not finish successfully on 2/1/2013 9:00 PM.

It looks like others are having this same problem that might be due to a vss writer not working properly.

Go to Start/Run cmd

Type in vssadmin list writers

All writers should be listeded with the state as Stable. If you have one that is not listed as stable and temporary fix is to restart and rerun the backup. The other solution is to dig in and see what happened with your server's o/s changes. This can be quite involved.

Here is a link to the information I found regardong others who had the same problem.
