Doing something pretty simple as backing up a folder on a Win SBS 2003 server.

Looking this up on Symantec didn't yield much.

Is there anyone who had the same issue?

Check this Symantec KB, it should resolve your issue

http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/301488.htm

Basically your catalog.dat file is corrupt,

1) Run Services.msc and stop the Backup Exec System Recovery service
2) Delete the \Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\FileBackup\catalog.dat.  The catalog.dat file will then be recreated when the next job is run.
3) Restart the Backup Exec System Recovery service and rerun File and Folder Backup
