Sounds like it's saying your backup disk is full.

OK, second possibility. Your external drive is formatted as FAT32. That would mean that it can't create a file larger than 4GB. If that's the case you need to reformat it as NTFS.

I'd guess it's not that as the external disk is nearly twice the size of the internal one.

Looking at the log again, I see that the number of bytes backed up is suspiciously close to 4GB. Combine that with the fact that external hard drives are often supplied formatted FAT32 and my money is on that being the problem.
