I am trying to backup my Site Server using the built in maintenance task but when I check the “smsbkup.log” I see the following lines:

Info: Asynchronous BackupComplete finished.
 After BackupComplete SMS Writer status = WAITING_FOR_FREEZE.
 Error: VSS_E_WRITERERROR_RETRYABLE. Error Code = 0x80,042,3f3

 Backup task completed successfully with zero errors but there could be some warnings, 
 AFTERBACKUP.BAT will be started if available in its predefined location
