Background

Yesterday evening, I replaced a backup drive for one with a higher capacity on our Windows 2000 server.
Being a clever little so-and-so, I thought I'd change the backup settings.
Previously the backup routine had simply backed up the contents of the individual drives on the server.
However, I added the following selections:
 - System State
 - Microsoft Exchange Directory
 - Microsoft Exchange Information Store
 - Microsoft Exchange Mailboxes

Problem

After running the backup last night, it reports "Job Failed" on my e-mail acknowledgement.
The log reports the following (the failure is in the 3rd section):

Any idea how to resolve this so that the mailboxes get backed up?
