Dear Sgupta1181,

Try this.

Reason: Folder been used for backup doesn't have necessary permission to write a file into it.

1. Navigate to the folder you are using for backup storage
2. Right Click and Select properties
3. Click on Security Tab
4. Add the Service Account with Full Control permissions
