This issue has been solved. See solution.

All,

I was wondering if someone could help we've exec 2010 R2 version 13.0 rev 4164  and for the last 2/3 weeks our backup has been failing with exceptions. this is as follows.

 

Click an exception below to locate it in the job log

 

Backup
 - AOFO: Initialization failure on: "E:". Advanced Open File Option used: Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).

V-79-10000-11242 - VSS Snapshot error. Out of disk space, or could not find an NTFS volume while creating the snapshot. Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) requires an NTFS volume with enough free disk space for each physical or virtual disk volume to cache the data that changes during the backup job.  Consult the Microsoft documentation for more information.

Well you have 3 different errors there

Not sure about the disk space issue

Missing files issue is probably because some 3rd party applications have registered some files to look like part of the System State and have then been uninstalled without the registration being removed. Your options are

1)  identify which software used the files in question and then contact the software vendor for help removing the registrations

2) Search the registry yourself to see if you can find the entries to modify/remove

3) Create files with the same names in the paths and then forget about the problem.

SQL issue is self explanatory either only do full backups or change the SQL configuration to Full Logging.
