Cannot see new folder in backup job

Created: 30 Nov 2012 • Updated: 30 Nov 2012 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Platform: Windows 2008 64bit

Version: Symantec Backup Exec 2012 SP1A

Type: File Server Backup Job

Here's my issue:  I've been backing up my File Server for a month now with Backup Exec 2012.  I decided to copy some old data in a folder over to my file servers D: drive.  When I edit my FS Backup Job I don't see the new folder appearing in the list of things to backup.  My FS Backup Job only shows what I was previously backing up.    To add more, I can backup the not listed folder not showing in my FS backup job without it appearing in my full backup of D drive.  I'm wondering if this is a bug Symantec has to work out?  I don't want to reinstall the Windows Agent (haven't tried it yet) just to view the new data folder.  Going forward, I don't want do this each time I create a new folder in my FS Server D drive.  There must be an easier way.

Here's what I want to do: remove that "Folder A" from being backed up by being able to deselect folder from our Backup Job.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Hello, Try restarting your Backup Exec services from the console.

I found out I had a brain fart and that it was under another directory.  Either way, it's showing up now.  Thanks for the help.
