We are backing up our SQL databases with the SQL "BACKUP DATABASE" command.  We also backup the resulting BAK files on to an external hard drive.  Occasionally the process that copies the BAK files on to the external hard drive clashes with the SQL backup command causing it to fail.  

Is there a way to make the SQL backup retry after a specified time interval if it fails to backup a database?
