The problem the OP is describing is a quirk of Backup Exec. We see the
same problem when a user is disabled in exchange, and BE tries to back
it up. Fabrice had the correct workaround.

Rolando,

First off,
You are correct that a user profile should be immediately disabled. My
experience has shown me not to delete it until you are sure no files are
needed.

Secondly, your backup should not fail because of a disabled account. It
will
however fail if you have deleted the account but not purged it from
Exchange
2003 system manager

Hi Rolando

You can purge the mailbox in the Exchange System Manager or unselect the
mailbox
in the Backup Job.

With best regards,

Subject: Backup Errors

Hello,

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?
