Windows Server Backup "Fatal Error"

My Windows 2008 Server Backup failed with the following message:

"A Fatal Error Occurred during a windows server backup operation
Error Details:
Unknown error (0x80042318)

Close windows server backup and then restart it."

I have not been able to close windows server backup.  
I have been able to use the "wbadmin" command line to disable backup, but this doesn't close it and I still can get to the backup.  I need some assistance to get this resolved.

I believe the error was caused by a disk error.

Thanks

Can you remove the WSB feature from the server and then re-add it?

noxcho,
I will have to try that after hours as I don't think the users will appreciate my rebooting in the middle of the day.  I seems logical but I won't know until I try.  Will let you know in morning.

No luck, uninstalling and re-installing didn't fix the problem.  As soon as I reinstalled and started backup I got the same error message.

But at least you were able to close and start the Windows Server Backup again.
Now, what errors referring to this error are there in Windows Events?

noxcho,

It appears that the error couldn't be cleared until the disk error that was causing it was resolved.  I replaced the external drive and all is well.

Thanks for the help
