BE2012 SP2 stalled on backup everyday


I have no completed backup for several days now.

Backup jobs get stalled,´when backingup to deduplication store, it looks like they are running but no disc og netvork activity.

I can work around in the BE2012 GUI, can cancel jobs but they newer stops. If i try to restart BE services it fails to stop BE job engine which get the stopping state in services cannot start the Beutil. Windows is working okay, but if I try tor restart the server, it get stucked at stopping services, so I have to switch it off on the power button.

Server info

Widnows 2008 R2 32 GB RAM intel Xeon E5-2650 2.00 Ghz processor. I don't have much to go for in the event viewer, execpt this one.
