My SBS 2003 backup is unable to backup some files - does this matter

I am receiving a report that the following filies cannot be backed up. Are they important and if so, what can I do to resolve the issue.


Unable to open the item C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\db\sem5.db - skipped.

It's odd that they are not being backed up.  THey are not serious though, this can be safely ignored.  

They Symantec and .net 2.0 files would be re-recreated on a re-install and the DHCP and WINS databases would also be re-created when you re-installed your server.

This is very common, and not really anything to worry about.  These are temporary and in-use files.  the reality is that they would simply be recrreated if lost anyway, assuming you don't reinstall Windows before recovering a backup of the C drive, in which case is really really doesn't matter.  At the end of the day, this is harmless.
