I am continually receiving this error periodically but now it seems I get it more than ever, "Difference encountered in file data".  If i run the job again it usually completes successfully. However from most of the solutions its usually a bad tape or change in a file.  But the error is thrown for difference in the system state of the servers it backups.  And our jobs are not backing up to tape they backup to folder.  Any suggestions on how to get this job to run successful every night without getting this error message.

Error Message:
Verify- \\SERVER\System?State \\SERVER\System?StateDifference encountered in file data.
The file System Files\System Files is different.
Difference encountered in file data.

Thanks in advance.
