Backup Errors

In dealing with security I'm encountering several obstacles within my
own team. Most recently I've been confronted with a problem that our
backup operator is having with Backup Exec 9.X, 10.X when backing up
Exchange Server 2003. The error is "Directory not found. Cannot backup
directory. <directoryname> and its subdirectories. We have discovered
that this is caused because the account associated with the mailbox is
disabled or deleted. My argument is that if a user is terminated or
leaves the company, that account should be immediately disabled. 

Are there any work-around solutions that can aid in satisfying the
backup needs without compromising security? Can VSS solve this issue?
