Within the last week, my Symantec Backup Exec 2012 hangs on "System State". Both on full backup and on Incremental Backup.

When I try to cancel the job, it marks it as "Cancelling" but it never ends. When I try to restart servives, it also get stucked.

So I have to restart the server, but the job restarts and hangs again.
