Could you check if there are any errors/warnings in the Event viewer on the Exchange Server.

If you have not seen any relevant in event viewer of exchange server it could be best at this time to ensure exchange is fully patched up and Backup Exec is on BE2010 R3 with sp2 and all updates.

Checking the writers on exchange server would be best and if they are not stable and in waiting for completion state will be good to restart the exchange server once.

Finally if all above is not helped would be good to ensure all databases are in consistent and not in dirty shutdown state and also if exchange is in DAG would be good to backup from active node if backup is done at this moment from passive node.

See if this makes a difference and hope that helps



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