BE2014 incorrectly backing up excluded volume (volume contains deduplication folder)

Hi,

I have BackupExec 2014 environment (with CASO)

I have a job defined on the CASO server where a media server backs itself up. (C drive, system state etc).

I have enabled SDR on the job, and have excluded a particular volume from the backup as it is too big (it contains a Backup Exec deduplication folder)

However, the job runs and tries to back up this excluded volume (along with the correct selections - C drive etc)

 

Has anyone got any ideas on how to stop this happening?

 

Thank you

I'm running Backup Exec 15 here and I had the same issue.  The Dedupe store (at least for BE15 on Server 2012R2) is listed as part of the Shadow Copy Components - you'll have to unselect it from there.
