Backup Exec 2014 Exchange database backup

Dear Experts,
I migrate all setting of backup exec 2010 to 2014. The reason behind upgrade is, backup exec 2010 does not support the backup of Exchange 2013 (GRT). This backup exec is installed as trial version for 60 days. In our new exchange server 2013, the hard disks for database are presented through SAN (HP EVA) to one of our mailbox server. The presented disk is mounted as a folder and not as a separate partition like e or f drive. After installing the backup exec agent on mailbox server, I created one job for backup. In the new job of Mailbox server, the first problem is the job not showing the exchange database. It is showing like a normal c  or d drive. It does not present database, like previously I used to see for exchange 2003 as First Information group,etc. The other problem is when the backup job is run, it does not take the backup of  mounted folder (which is actually a drive). It skips that folder and only take the backup of rest of the folder. Please help .

I added the same way as mentioned above. Now the only difference is, I can see the database folder (which is actually a drive  mounted as folder) but nothing like Microsoft exchange. I have not reinstalled backup exec.I tested credential and it successfully passed.

Dear Experts,
Actually it turned out to be misconfigured DAG.
