Backup Exec Services keep failing
Recently I swapped out 2 (2TB Seagate GO-Flex ) USB3 harddisks with 2 new (4GB Buffalo ) USB3 harddisks. Since I have done this the BackupExec services keep on failing during a scheduled backup. The backups run fine for a while but after a certain period the communication stalls and the services "crash". I would like to know why this is happening so I can correct this.
Backup Exec 2010 R3 is running on a fairly old Dell PowerEdge 2900 with additional added USB3 interface cards to support the USB3 harddisks.
The machine holds 4 USB drives. (2X2TB & 2X4TB). The 2X2TB USB disks (B2D-1 & B2D-2) are configured as "normal" disks while the 2X4TB USB disks (B2D-3 &B2D-4) could only be configured as Removable Devices. I am uncertain what exactly the differences are.
Any idea where I can find some clues why my services keep on crashing? Is this perhaps a powersaving issue of some sort with the new USB disks? Any thoughts you might have are much appreciated.

When I swapped my USB3 disks I also moved my catalog files as I was running out of diskspace on my internal disks on the server.
I moved those to one of the USB3 disks. Today I moved those back and did some cleanup to recover some diskspace. As said, this server is an oldy and I only had 67 Gigs of internal diskspace on this server.
So far my backups have been running smooth for 3 hours straight.
Perhaps it is to soon to tell but so far so good.
Will let you know if I run into any more problems. Appreciate the suggestions given!
