Backing up millions of small files

I have a doc imaging server that constantly receives files every minute.  These files are things like invoices, packing slips, ect.  They are very small in size but there are millions of them.

We are currently attempting to use DPM 2010 to do this but the replica stays inconsistant and cannot get a complete backup

Does anyone know of a the best way to do this?

I can't say this is ideal... but Disk2VHD can create a copy of the entire drive and does so fast regardless of file types.  But it's not a "backup" tool per se.  But file access afterwards is easy (mount the VHD) and there is no incremental capability.
