"Application popup: Windows - Delayed Write Failed : Windows was unable to save all the data for the file 'xxx'. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere."
I had this error recently during my nightly backups.  I narrowed it down to my server’s 10/100/1000Mbps LAN card.  Since my network is only 10/100Mbps I forced the speed and duplex to 100Mpbs and Full Duplex rather than Auto Negotiate.  After I did this the error went away and my network latency issues got better.
