Hi Pramod,

it seems that the main error is:

Cannot open backup device

'R3HDD2(W:\backup\backup1)'. Operating system err

or 3(The system cannot find the path specified.).

Does this patch already exist? W:\backup\backup1

You can also try to create a backup device in SQL Server Management Studio before you start the backup. This can be done under: Server Objects --> rightclick on "Backup Devices" then you can enter a new backup device name and the related path

Regards,

Beate
