Trouble using MD3000i for Backups

By Chiphead® ·
Hello everybody,

I'm having kind of an odd problem with our Dell MD3000i storage unit. We have it linked to just our backup server as two 5.5TB drives. When I perform a backup using Symantec's Backupexec that's just files and ends up just as a B2D##### file the backup is always sucessfull when using either drive. However when I go to backup exchange the backup is sucessful on the first drive but fails when using the second drive as a backup location. I tried using Process Monitor from the sysinternals suite to monitor file activity and copied a file to the first drive and then the second drive and I think I've found why its failing but I can't think of how to fix it. What's happening is whenever there was file activity of the first drive is would specificly state Explorer.exe was performing an OpenFile operation on K:\testfile.txt. When I tried to open a file on the second drive I would get Explorer.exe was performing an OpenQuery operation on C:\Windows\system32\shell32.dll. So I guess my question is why is windows looking to shell32.dll for everything on the second drive when it doesn't for the first drive?
