I am using Symantec Backup Exec 11d.    When I backup the Utility Partition and the System State I only see byte count but it doesnt say it backed up any files, and only 1 directory for System State.  Is this normal?  If not, what am i doing wrong?

Windows Server 2003

Below are the logs for both backups.
