SBS 2008 with Exchange 2007 OK in console but failed in report

I have a SBS 2008 standard server (all current patches) with Exchange 2007 SP3.  I'm not sure if these error started when I started exchanging a second external drive into the backup rotation.  It is backed up with the built in backup program.  The console shows that the backup is OK, but in the daily report the backup fails with the following errors:

MSExchangeIS  9782
Event Details:    Exchange VSS Writer (instance 0c36e5d0-0b83-4cc3-a482-0af5f4968c32:12) has unsuccessfully completed the backup of storage group ''Second Storage Group''. No log files have been truncated for this storage group.

If this log file is required for recovery, a good copy of the log file will be needed for recovery to complete successfully. For more information, click http://www.microsoft.com/contentredirect.asp.

Does the LCR or SCR enabled for the exchange storage groups? If yes, then refer the below article:

Hope this helps,

From what I can tell LCR is disabled.  Under the "copy status" it shows "disabled" for both storage groups under "server configuration" --> "mailbox".   Is that the correct way to tell?

This problem seems to have started about the same time a new external drive was added to the rotation for backup.  It happens every day & with both drives.

Is the above for telling if LCR is enabled?  How do you tell if SCR is enabled?

seems from what I have been reading that this is not an uncommon issue, although few (if any) seem to have solved it.  On a SBS2008 LCR and SCR are not enabled.  LCR is currently not & I do not know where to verify id SCR is (I doubt it is unless by accident).  

I am under the belief that it has to do with the log files.  They may have been deleted by accident.  How can these be regenerated / linked?

I found this:

by turning on & then turning off circular logging (dis-mounting & re-mounting (after turning on & then off)), it cured my customer's issue.
