You can manually add exclusions to the SBS backup script, usually stored in..

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Backup\Small Business Backup Script.bks

..So it could look something like...

C:\ClientApps\ /Exclude
C:\Documents and Settings\ /Exclude
C:\Temp\ /Exclude
C:\wmpub\ /Exclude
JET SBSERVER\Microsoft Information Store\First Storage Group\

Open in new window

I think you try to exclude somathing on D drive?
