Hi kieum,

How much space do you have on this drive? 

Reboot your server and then create another b2d job to run the backup to.

Delayed write fail is a hardware problem and OS problem.  It has nothing to do with BE.  It is probably caused by a bad connector, e.g. if you are using a USB disk and the USB connector is loose.  I would suggest that you change your USB cable and the socket.

Also you can try to disable the write caching.  See this document

If this document does not match your OS, search the Net for "disable write caching"

Also, Use the B2D Test tool on his volume and check if there are any errors

...have you even tried to run an NTbackup?
