e00084af - The directory or file was not found, or could not be accessed

i did a fresh install of Veritas Backup Exec 10.0 REV 5484 on a new server. the server previously have backup exec 11d trial version. i keep getting the "e00084af - The directory or file was not found, or could not be accessed" error whenever i try to back up. there is a 0 bite count unless when it errors so its not able to do an even partial back up of the C: and E: drive unless i have shadow copy selected and then it only backs up the shadow copy part.  The test run runs perfectly with a complete bite count. i tested the resource credentials ( all successful), changed the login on all the services to another administrator account and set it to default on  the login account credentials window. no luck. the backup errors out after about 2 minutes. i'm new at this and haven't set this up before but it seems like there is a permissions problem if it errors our that quickly
