  • From the WHS Console help
     
    Learn more about what happens during the Backup Time
     
    the following is stated:
     

    The following things happen during the Backup Time each day:

    • Home computers are backed up one after another.

      A backup that is in progress finishes, even if the end of the Backup Time has passed.

    • Windows Updates are installed, and Windows Home Server restarts (if required).

    • On Sunday, Backup Cleanup runs.
     
    It appears the Backup Cleanup runs during the backup time on Sundays.  So change the backup time so start later to not interfere with your movie watching.
