Please check the link below

Also would recommend to make new selection and then check to see if that make s difference ,if you are doing open file backup would suggest to check the AOFO option.

Also please note "There is no ability to add agents and options other than Library Expansion Option (LEO) unless you upgrade to the full version of Backup Exec. All upgrades can be done with license keys, no additional software installation is required."

Hope that helps



Don't forget to give a "Thumbs Up" or Mark as "Solution" if someones advice has helped you.

Make sure that you are on SP2 and the latest hotfixes.  If need be, run LiveUpdate until it says that there are no more updates.
