Backup 2 Disk Folder

Level 3
I have 26 incremental backup jobs that go to 2 different backup to disk folders. Occasionally 1 of the jobs will hang during verify with zero bytes remaining to verify. It's always a different job that fails. The job appears to have completed successfully, but it didn't close. I get the following error when I try to open the log file.

Unexpected end of input.

342: C:\Program Files\VERITAS\Backup Exec\NT\Data\BEX_SHOPS465_07332.xml

The only way I can clear the unfinished job is to restart services.

I have tried re-creating some of the jobs and even created a new backup 2 disk folder but it hasn't helped.

NOTE: It is never more than 1 job that will fail. The other 25 work fine.

Any suggestions?

Thank You for your repy.

No there are no alerts.

It is always just one of the 26 jobs that fails and it's not the same job each time.
