Backup Exec 2012 - DFS Shares on Windows 2008 R2

When you backup a NAS using DFS with Backup Exec 2012, I know you have to make sure to select all of the Shadow Copy Components to grab the data, but do you also have to select the data drive letters and/or shares from the normal selection list, or does it just ignore those if they are part of the DFS namespace?

Just wondering as we just implemented a new NAS.  The full backup on the weekend is running normally, but the incrementals are hanging at 0% somewhat indefinitely or taking 7-8 hours to grab 40-50g of incremental data.

There are a lot of complaints about speed and performance on the way BE handles DFS backups. The article below goes through the exact configuration, which it seems like you already know, but a few other options. However, as one option points out, it does not keep ACL data.
