We are struggeling getting the backup job ending successful. Attached are the error message.

Are running backup jobs on USB disks that are rotated with 5 different disks. the backup is running but the verifying prosess ends up with failed. Have tried different solutions, such as deleting the catalogs folder, deleting all data on disks for clean start, upgrading the Symantec Backup Exec program with SP2, and several test runs...

Any help will be most appreciated.

This appeard to be an issue with BE 2010 and the advice from Symantec was that customers experiencing this should get in contact with them. I'd suggest contacting Symantec to see if this is an issue with BE 2012!

Are you putting your incremental/differential backups on different disks?  If so, try putting the entire backup chain on one disk.

It is not a good idea of put a backup chain on different disks.  BE 2012 expects the entire backup chain to be online when it does a restore.
