Hello and thank you for taking the time to address my question.

Running Server 2003 sbs sp2. Soon to be upgraded to sbs 2008 (reason old hardware, one of the HD's is reporting bad blocks)

I received a backup error report today in regards to the backup. I would like to get some input on this since i need to have a clean file backup for migrating over to new server. Below the screenshot is the log. Any input/recommendation on how i should proceed would be greatly appreciated :-)  Thank you for your time and expertise.

What is it saying is some file changes between backup and verification, or it is having a problem backing up a file and becoming corrupt... usualy tho its just a file changes between backup and verification.

The backup is completing so check you have no over night processes running while the backup is working and Exchange is doing its stuff like defrag etc.
