Backup Exec 11d / wmiprvse.exe issue

Hello
We have a w2003 server running Backup Exec 11d.
The backup jobs run to an external HDD.
A job is set to run to drive each night and over write previous job.

It seems that bakup jobs are not being over written and drive fails up causing the backup to fail at that point.

I've noticed that wmiprvse.exe seems to put a lock on the backup files.
Have tried a manual delete of files but get error prompt from Windows saying can't delete Access denied.

After a server restart we can delete the files but I trust this is because the lock from wmiprvse .exe has been freed

Could anyone advise on a possible solution for this

Thanks in advance

this process will certainly eat up your cpu usage as well as stop the backups as it holds the files

to terminate this process you either need to go to task manager to kill it, you need to check symantec website for latest patches which can fix this issue.

this file is found under c:\windows\system 32
