Not writing any data to tape.

Master/Media server is Windows Server 2003, NBU 6.5.4.  Client is Windows Server 2003, NBU 6.5.  The client is also a SQL server.

I want to back up C:\, D:\, and Shadow Copy Components.  I don't want to mess with the SQL files so I have 3 exclusions for this client:  *.LDF, *.MDF and *.NDF.

If I do an ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES directive, I get 1  Kilobytes, 0 Files and 1000 KB Per Second on each of the three jobs.  No matter how I setup the file selection, I see the same results.  I have selected one specific folder that contains numerous files and 219MB of data.  The results written to tape are the same as above.  When I open the restore window, I see C: and D: but there is no data there which makes sense.

Has anyone had any experience with this kind of problem?  I have uninstalled and reinstalled the NBU client probably 3 or 4 times with multiple reboots of the client as well.

Thanks in advance for any help you can throw my way.
