Where is the job now? Here's what I found out ... someone (or, someones plural) has increased the usage on the F: volume in the past week, to the point where there's less than 30% free space left on the volume. For whatever reasons, it wasn't caught. I'm wondering whether this is causing the slowdown. Steve and I have been looking to see if we can relieve some pressure, overall, on the volume, by moving some data. I don't want to, however, move data while the backup is still running.
