Message is a follows :

According to this blogpost the reason is simple :

When using the native Backup solution from Windows, and the backup destination is an External Drive.

You can get this error when the Windows Search Service is running ?

 

SOLUTION :

Stop the Windows Search Service before the backup starts and start again afterwards.

– net stop wsearch

– net start wsearch

You can incorporate this is the existing Backup Scheduled Tasks like this :

Add one command BEFORE and 1 command AFTER the backup job.
