I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this. I have tried to backup to a NAS and 3 other servers and am continuing to get this failure. my researching has not come up with anything that helps since this is most common with tape drives and no tape drives are in use in this application

Maybe this will help.

If the error occurs when backing up to a Backup To Disk Location:

Run chkdsk on the source and destination drive to confirm the disk integrity.

If it occurs on deduplication storage: Confirm that the dedup folder is not running out of space on the volume where it resides.  If this is the case, attempt to follow the instructions found in these two technotes:
