A couple weeks a go, we started getting Backup exceptions indicating that the C:\Config.sys file was skipped during the System State backup.  BE12.5 Version info is included in the attached file.  I  am runinng Windows Server 2008 32bit. Anyone have any ideas?

That link does not seem to be related to my issue. I am not doing differential backups.  There is an error message in the backup logs indicating that the file was skipped.  I can find no indication of the reason for the file being skipped other than the fact that it does not exist. From what I have read Windows Server 8 does not have a config.sys file.  So I guess the question would be why is Backup Exec giving an error for skipping a file that does not and should not exist.

Is Be working properly now? I've seen mesages like that before and I've created a dimmy file in place of the mising one with no negative imapct. You can also restore it from a previous backup.

I am going to create a dummy file.  It has been going on for a while, so a dummy file should be fine.  Thanks.
