"Difference encountered in file data" during verify:

To isolate medias/tape drive issue, see if verify is failing on any particular media or when written with a particular drive.

Also as you are using backup exec 2010,it would be good to be on latest version of BE2010 which is R3 this would be a free upgrade from the current version you have and would keep all your configuration intact too ,so ensure you do this and also install sp2 and other updates using live updates once you upgrade to BE2010 R3 and then check



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