Verify that the SQL Server service account for the SQL Server 2005 instance has the proper permissions to the drive\folder you are trying to back up to.

Also verify that the system account has full control to the root of the drive you are trying to backup to.

That is not the issue. We are not trying to back up SQL. We are just trying to back up folders on the server that SQL 2005 is installed on.

Hi biotec,
Did you ever suss this problem out? I am having similar issues with veritas 10 since moving some folders from another server and now it won't back up. Credentials all seem fine, but I have no backups for that server which is the main file server. I'm very scared!!!
Cheers
