Recently my client's Exchange 2010 backups have finished with the following error;

Error : 0xe0001209
V-79-57344-4617 - The backup-to-disk folder or the path for staging temporary data on the media server must be on an NTFS volume. Do any of the following, and then submit the job again:
- Create a new backup-to-disk folder on an NTFS volume - Change the location of the current backup-to-disk folder to an NTFS volume - Change the path for staging temporary data. Click Tools, click Options, and then click Backup to change the path."

It seems to backup all the data, it just finishes with the error.

The Exchange jobs are being backed up to tape - the Staging folder as mentioned in the error, is on a local (albeit SAN based) NTFS volume (I've also changed it to another drive, but same result).

I've re-created the job, but again to no avail.

Any pointers ?
