Backups not Staring... - Windows Server

Hi all, I have a Windows 2003 server with several backups scheduled to run throughout the night. The jobs doesn't seem to start - even when i run them manually from the "scheduled tasks" window, i get no response. Application Event Viewer comes up with a error that says "refer to the backup log file" - where do i find that log file ? Also, i have created a user other than administrator to run the backups and i have added that user to the backup operators group but still nothing... Can someone maybe help ? Thanx., Gawie....

    Hi all,

    I have a Windows 2003 server with several backups scheduled to run
    throughout the night. The jobs doesn't seem to start - even when i run them
    manually from the "scheduled tasks" window, i get no response. Application
    Event Viewer comes up with a error that says "refer to the backup log
    file" - where do i find that log file ?

    Also, i have created a user other than administrator to run the backups and
    i have added that user to the backup operators group but still nothing...

    I have a similar problem with a 2k3 svr where the backup
    does not start, so I would be interested to hear the
    outcome of this mate.

    Description
    NTBackup error: 'The saved selection file "D:\backup.bks" cannot be
    found.'

    Christophe Lubrano di Ciccone (Last update 10/15/2003):
    On Win2k, this happens if "backupexec" e.g. was previously installed.
    Then another pool is created: backupexec. It must be deleted. The
    backup.bks file and the other one without extension must be deleted
    and recreated using the wizard.

    Ionut Marin (Last update 10/14/2003):
    This problem may occur if one or more folders that have been scheduled
    for backup are deleted or moved.

    Jmarekw
    Open and save .bks file.

    Dunno if any of those situations applies to you guys?

    Cheers
