Backup Exec 11d job Failure

Posted on 2009-02-10
Last Modified: 2013-12-01
Backup Jobs have started failing  on the backup to tape portion of Backup Exec.  The jobs are created through Policies.  All server backup to  tape.  Since this was failing, I created a separate job for  each  server, and  aimed them to disk. I thought I could isolate the error this way, but I get the same error.

Backup- \\servername.local\Resources$ "Event logging files"V-79-57344-4608 - The backup-to-disk folder that was specified for this job must be on a local NTFS volume. Create a new backup-to-disk folder on a local NTFS volume or modify the current folder, and then submit the job again.

Can someone  help?

    These jobs that are failing have been created thru Policies... Are these new jobs? or have these exact jobs worked in the past?

    Well, if the backups are failing on disk and tape it is definitely not your storage medium that is the problem. Its safe to say you should be able to go back to the tapes for now.  In the Job Monitor tab click on one of the failed backups and look at the stats in there.  What does the log say?
