Heyas,

I am getting the following error in the logs:

Failed:(-1073548784) Executing the query "BACKUP LOG [Trend TO  DISK = N'F:\\SQLTrnL..." failed with the following error: "Write on "F:\\SQLTrnLogBackup\\Trend\\Trend_backup_2016_08_14_214004_6899647.trn" failed: 112(failed to retrieve text for this error. Reason: 15105)

90 percent processed.". Possible failure reasons: Problems with the query, "ResultSet" property not set correctly, parameters not set correctly, or connection not established correctly.

I've already tried the following fix but it hasn't worked:

How else would I troubleshoot this issue?

Thank you.

It's a disk-write fail, but the reporter is too high up to know why.
Assuming that you've not got a failing disc, you're not writing to the root of C: (you're not), and that the destination file does not already exist, ... take a look at the disc and make sure you're not out of space!

Hi DcpKing,

No-where near, still 279GB free on the drive I save my log files to.

Any other suggestions?

Thank you.

I agree - it looks like an impending disk failure. Can you try running chkdsk to check the disk for file system errors and also check for bad sectors?

How big is the transaction log?
Can you try to backup to a different disk to see if the error persists?

I'd agree with Nakul - get your data backed up off that drive, replace it, and give it a thorough check-out.

Thanks guys for the advice I will check that specific disk on the SAN. It will probably take a week, for the SAN team to schedule that though finalising question now.

Well, as I said, start getting good backups set up somewhere else. Good luck.
