They all look ok.

Are you trying to backup Exchange on its own or are you doing a backup of the entire server and it failing on the Exchange part?

Presuming that you are using Windows Backup and not a third party application?

When was the last time you backed up?  Any software installed on the server since this backup or any Exchange updates done?
