I am using Chinese Windows XP. the phrase "磁盘空间不足。" means "Insufficient Disk Space".
I am backing up to an external harddisk with over 900GB disk space. no way that it is out of space. I tried backing up the same file to a local harddisk with success.
So it must be related to choosing the external harddisk as the destination.
Please help.

Is the destination drive formatted as FAT32 or NTFS? If it's FAT32, please format it as NTFS as the FAT32 cannot handle files larger than 4 GB.

Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here:
