Backup Exec 12.0
Exchange 2003
Backing up to an external hard drive (NAS)

If I turn on GRT style backups, they fail with this error:

Completed status: Failed
Final error: 0xe00084af - The directory or file was not found, or could not be accessed.
Final error category: Job Errors
For additional information regarding this error refer to link V-79-57344-33967

If I turn off GRT style backups, they succeed

Anything i can check to see why this is happening?

Reading the above, it sounds like you're losing connectivity to your nas

Can you attempt the backup on local media and see if you still get the error on GRT backups?

Grt backups are time sensitive and I/o intensive.

GRT Backups to exchange server's own drive = Success
non-GRT to NAS = Success
GRT to NAS = Fail

That's about what I expected.  You need to find a way to increase throughput on the transfer and/or to minimize activity during the backup time frame.  I'm afraid that's the only solution.
