Exchange 2007 - V-79-57344-34070 - Snapshot technology error (0xE0008516
Been researching for a while now this error message, and I cannot seem to resolve. Further, if there was a way to get greater detail on this eror message, trouble-shooting might be easier, Error messages are as follows:

Snapshot technology error (0xE0008516): Resources specified for snapshot do not have any valid data on them. Check if files were deleted or renamed
I have been getting these error messages for a month or longer.
The backup does occur successfully, in that I get about a 90 GB backup (size of the DB's involved) as well as committed logs get flushed. Further, I did an update this weekend (somewhere on the web talked about applying the latest RollUp update might resolve it) and obviously rebooted the server. This had been occurring on both of my DB servers, but the second one cleared up after the update/reboot this weekend.
Only other bit of history I have is that we re-structured the DB's and Storage groups to a one-to-one relationship about a month ago when this all started. Some Storage Groups were deleted, new DB's where created, etc. I have checked/dobule-checked that only the SG's that I have are selected, have DB's, etc and are all set up correctly.
Finally, I have already gone throough the normal steps, including the following articles.
The following one does not apply, as there IS a DB in each of the storage groups it is complaining of.
My next choice I will try is going to be blow away the job completely and re-create the job, although I would rather see if there is a fix first.
