e3125 failed to read <filename> data set fffefffe

I am getting the above error when backing up one of my servers. I back
it up remotely from an NW6.5.5 server running AS11.1SP1. It backs up
fine for a while and then one night it will only copy a few gigs and then
give this error. It will then give have this problem for several backup
sessions and in the past just seems to fix itself. Any thoughts? The
server works fine for normal use(it holds our GW archives and a bunch of
accounting bills). Noone ever has a problem with it for those programs.
The backup server successfully backs up several other servers. Thanks
for your help.
