Backup Exec 11D Having Issues Backing Oracle Archive Directory

Hi everyone, using backup exec 11D I've been having some issued trying to get a reliable backup of our Oracle Database to tape. We have Oracle set to backup to disk via RMAN each night at 3AM and have a tape job using backup exec to backup that now created folder at 5AM. The RMAN is finished well before then but for whatever reason it completely hangs on the first file it attempts to grab from that directory. We are not using the Oracle agent for this file as it is a file not an active DB. The file's size is approximately 5GB. The OS is 64 bit MS 2003 Server.

The job backs up a C: drive no problem and D: drive no problem except that folder. There is no error that I see present (maybe just not looking in the right area) the job will just continue running until cancelled constantly lowering the transer rate avg as more time goes by.

Does anyone have any ideas on why Backup Exec is refusing to backup this folder? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Can you manually copy that file elsewhere when logged in as the Backup Exec service account or whatever account it uses to access data for this job?

Although the service is running under domain admin credentials I manually adjusted permissions on the folder to explicitly include the domain admin account instead of just 'owner' and 'administrators' group and it appears to be backing it up properly now.
