Data Protection Manager 2012 and Exchange 2013

I'm using DPM onsite at a school.  The school has Exchange 2013 as well.  I have DPM backing up the info store on my exchange server.  When I look at the results, I see that the "recovery point creation failed" but I also see a last restore point of today and 5 iterations for my last discovery point.  So, it appears my info store is being backed up, but I'm not sure since I have the error of recovery point creation failed.

Ideas on how to resolve this?

Can you post the logs for this? That would be most helpful to resolve this..

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

I discovered that I had circular logging turned on and the DPM fails when circular logging is on.  Once turned off, DPM works great.

As no one else offered a solution, I thought deleting the question was best.

Actually, never mind deleting the question.  Adam's suggestion to post the logs is what motivated me to look at the logs in greater detail and it was in the logs that I noticed that with circular logging turned on, DPM would fail.
