I ran the backup into a single file in a non-compressed folder and it
completed successfully. I guess we can conclude from this that
compressed files > 30GB cannot be relied on.

Now, having said that, I used to do the restore to a single file in a
compressed folder. We did not run into problems until the database
got to around 40-45GB, and then we would see intermittent failures of
the restore (I don't remember what the error message was).
