Backup Exec 2010 - Job Fails - Directory or file was not found - accessed

Created: 06 Jun 2012


I am running Backup Exec 2010 r2 job - backing up a remote server with user HomeDirectory data.

This data is constantly changing - being deleted or created

This job fails on occasion with the error message:

V-79-57344-33967 & V-79-57344-65033

A TECH article (Article: TECH160574)  have mentioned unchecking the following settings should eliminate this issue


1.Open the backup job properties.

2.Select 'Advanced' from the left pane under 'settings'

3.Uncheck the below options.

  • Backup files and directories by following junction points.
  • Backup files and directories by following symbolic links.

I am looking for a better understanding \ explanation of :

  • junction points
  • symbolic links

And to see if anyone else has had a similar issue and how they resolved it.
