I have auto backup set up for Friday of each week.
Last week however my 2 biggest blogs failed to backup for some reason. The others went through fine.
Activity log showed the backup failed.
I then clicked on ‘View Events’ and this is the record.

I have since managed to manually backup both blogs with no problem, though both took a long time to complete.
Any idea on what the problem could be?
