Backup Exec fails

I just installed Backup Exece 10d/10.1 for SBS2003.

All my backup runs have errors that I cannot figure out.  My most recent test run of an Exchange backup, ended with an error "Capacity check status    : Failed" but the disk we are backing up to has 50 times the capacity needed for the backup.

I am at a loss on next steps.

here is the log:

Thanks, but this rev of Backup Exec does not have the option boxes on the web links.

It's just a test run, BE isn't very good at determining media availability in the test run, I've seen it fail many times. Give it a pool of devices rather than a single one and that makes it fail as well. Just ignore it, the actual backup job should be fine.
