Backup Exec 2010 R3 Not Doing Full Backup

I'm doing full backups of a local hard drive with Backup Exec 2010 R3 and it was working fine.  After doing a successful restore to the E drive, I've been unable to back it up since.  I suspect a permission issue. Every time I run a full backup of my E drive now, I get an abbreviated backup of approx. 300 bytes that takes all of 2 minutes vs. the 5 hours to backup approx. 250G.  I've rebooted, restarted services and even recreated the backup job without success.   What needs to be done to get my backup working again?   Thank you!!  Below is the log from the backup (of particular interest is the backup of the E drive)
