Please show us your Policy config?

On the master server, please run this command (open CMD with 'Run As Administrator'):

bppllist <policy-name> -U
(command is in <install-path>\veritas\netbackup\bin\admincmd)

Use ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES as file directive. This will cover shadow copy components/system state as well.

Assumption is the mother of all mess ups.
