Automatic backup stops responding at 99% and process is not complete

QuickBooks has the capability to automatically back up your company file/s. When this feature is activated, your files will be saved and backed up in your preferred location.

During the process, there would be instances when QuickBooks would stop running at 99% (just when it is about to finish),
then the back up process would be end abruptly and would not be complete.

A *.tmp (temporary? file extension will be created and the Automatic backup icon will continue to show in the Windows System Tray.
