If my transalations are right then you have only the first, second and third Sunday specified (no 4th /5th Sunday) and no Saturday specified at all - there is an open time window but no day specified

So it will only run 3 sundays per month and no saturdays

Struggling to translate it all but there may be something that affects Monday there?

Hope this helps

Daily backups using Calendar schedule with windows that span midnight is not always a good choice.

If a backup was only able to start after midnight, it means the backup has already run for that day - it will not run again that evening.

Please show us Sharepoint backups for this client for the last two weeks:

bpimagelist -client uscspapp1 -policy Sharepoint -pt MS-SharePoint -d 01/01/2013 -e 01/15/2013 -U

I personally prefer to use Frequency based schedules for Daily and Weekly schedules.

I just had a look at your schedules again (was battling with Google Translate because NBU output has cut off some characters.

None of your schedules are crossing midnight - so ignore my previous post.

If we look at your Diario (Daily) schedule, we see that Monday - Friday is selected with open windows between 01:30 and 06:00 on these days:

monday - segunda-feira
tuesday - terça-feira
wednesday - quarta-feira
thursday - quinta-feira
friday - sexta-feira
saturday - sábado

We see successful backups on these week days (I have excluded successful Sunday backups):
 
Fr 01/11/2013 01:30 
Fr 01/11/2013 01:30 
Th 01/10/2013 01:30 
Th 01/10/2013 01:30 
We 01/09/2013 01:30 
We 01/09/2013 01:30 
 
We 01/02/2013 11:13 
We 01/02/2013 11:08 
 
I see no reason why Daily backups for Monday and Tuesday backups would be skipped.
Any possibility that backup was attempted but failed? And someone possibly deleted failed backups from Activity Monitor?
 
Other than this, all I can suggest is to examine nbpem logs for Monday and Tuesday to look for a reason why we don't see sccessful backups for Monday and Tuesday.
