ACT 2011 Pro Backup problems

I keep getting this error when I try to backup the database.  We have six users and I made sure they would all stay out of the software today so I could run the backup.  All the users connect to a server and it's also the same machine I'm running the backup from, so the backup is local to that servers disk.  I ran the dbase maintenence after the first error and ran again and it came right back.  

 

Any thoughts?  Thank you for your help!

Hello escross4,
Try deleting temporary files, emptying recycle bin, then rebooting your machine.

Re: ACT 2011 Pro Backup problems

I tried your suugestion of deleting the Temp files but it failed on me again.  I re-deleted and restarted the machine and tried a few mor times and finally gave up.  So today I tried it again and this is what I recieved.  Is there a specific naming convention I need to follow?  I can't imagine the file being to big to to backup considering the entire dbase is only 2GB.  Maybe a Zip software issue??
