I am running FBackup v4.6 B259
on a Dell PowerEdge 2850 RAID 5 Machine

Running Windows Server 2003
I am backing up the RAID 5 array to an external USB HDD.
It is reporting the following error about 50 times during the backup as a warning:

Source error (code 87). The parameter is incorrect. (Followed by the file name)
It is also bringing up popups that recommend I run chkdsk /f
I restarted the server (which is running without issue) did the chkdsk, retried the backup and the same thing happened. I tried it on another server and got the same error messages.
I have another server that is running the same config but it running FBackup V4.5 B232 and I am not getting these errors.
Any ideas where the problem might fall?
Thank you.
