From the KB

This issue may occur if the following conditions are true:
The backup operation is completed successfully.
The backup operation does not truncate the Exchange Server log files successfully.

My guess is - backup didnt flush logs.
What backup software are you using ?

Symantec. yes some of them are. This has only been happening the past couple of weeks. Nothing on the server was changed.

exclude the whole exchsrvr\ folder
that will exclude mdbdata / logs etc.

i am in a ABS Club (Anything But Symantec). The number of issues created by Symantec Endpoint Protection far outnumbers the number of issues solved by it.
Most of the time it doesnt even block spam / viruses properly.

okay. Does this error hurt the exchange server at all?

its missing log files.
All emails in those log may not  be accessible.

When exchange receives emails, it writes it first to log files and then commits it to database.

You can try taking a full backup after shutting off symantec mail scan / AV and see if you get the error after that.
