e0008516 - Resources specified for snapshot do not have any valid data on them. Check if files were deleted or renamed.
I am having problems with the following error message when backing up Exchange 2007 SP3 mailboxes with Backup Exec 2010 SP3 on a MS 2008 SP2 server:
"e0008516 - Resources specified for snapshot do not have any valid data on them. Check if files were deleted or renamed."
I have tried absolutely everything to fix the issue, spending hours (and hours) reading and trying all the solutions I can find online. In my case the ONLY solution which works EVERY time is to restart the Exchange server and retry the backup job. The reason I wanted to post this thread is that the problem for me only started in August when I upgraded the server from SP1 to SP2 and Exchange 2007 from SP1 to SP3. I also did all other Windows updates on that day. Prior to this, the backup job in question had ran successfully for over three years!
What I find is that the backup will work for 5-10 days no problem then fail. After a restart, it will work again for another period of time before failing again.
I have a very long list of updates that may have caused the issue, too long to list here. But has anybody else noticed this behavior only started after an MS updates(s)?
