It looks like you are trying to backup a network drive, and not the actual drive. That, if my memory doesn't fail me, isn't supported by ntbackup. Only local drives are. Change your selection to only backup from local drives.

Just create a new backup job and select the local drives of your server. I don't have an example server with exchange 2003 at the moment, but if I remember correctly, Exchange automatically creates a mapped drive to a share on Drive "G:" or something similar. Don't select that drive.
