  • Message The job failed. The Job was invoked by Schedule 278 (FullBackup_Weekly). The last step to run was step 1 (Subplan_1). – Pappi Sep 16 at 14:04
  • Assumption: There is just enough space for backups, and the last step of the job is to delete prior backups. (so keeping just the most recent N). Check to see if you have enough space in the target folder. You may need to manually delete some older files to make room. – Jonathan Fite Sep 16 at 14:07
