Backup Exec 12 Failing to backup Exchange Servers

Every night our Backup server runs a backup to disk that seems to fail when trying to backup either of our Microsoft Exchange servers.  There is a weekly tape backup that has the same backup selection but it runs over the weekend. The tape backup doesn't have this issue.  I have tried the suggested resolution given by Symantec (http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/290493.htm) but this seems to have had no impact.  

System Info:
Windows Server 2003 Standard SP2
Symantec AntiVirus 10.1.5.5000
Dual 3GHz Intel Xeon
4GB RAM
5  1.5TB Drives (One for each weekday)

I have included a snippet of the log file.

This is a guess, but you may want to try to adjust settings to cache volume and cache file size using the Advanced Open File Option Wizard.  
They may be too large.

I am currently not using the Advanced Open File Option.

Is the disk an NTFS volume or FAT32?.    I have found that NTFS volumes work better.  
It is easy to convert it from FAT32 to NTFS in the Computer Management/Disk management console if this is the case.

I should clarify.   The destination disk should be an NTFS volume.

The Storage volume and the OS volume are all currently formatted NTFS.

Have you tried a different portable HD?     I had a situation where one of three portable hard drives simply refused to work.   Replacing the stubborn drive solved the problem.

This is going into a 9 TB Enterprise level SAN split into 1.5 TB drives.  It has worked for the last year and a half.
