Backup Exec restore problem: Empty folders, no files

One of our jobs run on Backup Exec 12 is showing lots of empty folders but no files within the folders.  The backup job shows that over 200 gig was backed up, but I cannot select a file to restore!  B Exec runs on a 2008 Server and backs up locally to fixed HDD's.  Any ideas guys!?

Are your backups full or incremental? If so, you may need to go back to the last full.
Are your shares DFS?

My apologies, this kind of fell through the cracks.  They are DFS, yes.

Well, due to the way it works, there is a specific configuration for backing up DFS folders or all you will have is pointers and empty folders:
