Every Wednesday at around 3:00AM, we have a shedule to perform a full backup on one of out servers and get the following message: (Attached pic)

We are running Backup Exec 12.5 and this backup is going to an external hard drive.  What's weird is that the Incremental backups are running fine, but this full backup is failing.

Try turning off the verify option in the backup job and see if it succeeds as a test.

Thanks pgm554.  I am testing that now.  I have a feeling it will succeed, but I'm really curious as to WHY this message is happening.  I must be missing something.

It's Symantec,they are what they are.

Their CEO lost his job over how buggy BE 12.x was.
