I recently deleted a network share, which was backed up regularly on Backup Exec v10 and I also made sure I uncheck the selections in the selection list. However, backup started reporting the following errors. I even renamed the server, which has the share and still get the error messages.

Backup- SERVERNAME The Media Server was unable to connect to Remote Machine SERVERNAME. The machine could not be found on the network.
The Media Server will fall back on the local agent to try and complete the operation.
Unable to attach to \\SERVERNAME\FOLDER1.
V-79-57344-33899 - The resource could not be backed up because an error occurred while connecting to the Backup Exec for Windows Servers Remote Agent.
Make sure that the Remote Agent is installed on the target computer and is running.

Go to your backup selections - you should see a radio button to put the selection screen into text mode. From text mode, find the network share and edit it out by hand. Done!
