No Offence, but did you check the log? Have you checked how much disk space you have got? try to rule out suggested causes starting by most easy one first.

i have checked all the logs, we have enough disk space.

also the system logs on the server that hosts the backup share? It sounded like you didn't have much access? Any write failures should be in the system logs of the server hosting the share or the underlying storage array (if there is one).
