The System State file could not be backed up

 We are running Backup Exec 8.6 on w2k server. Whenever we back up a remote w2k server's system State, we get the following error and the backup stops. Any suggestions?

Unable to open the item \_SharedHardlinkData_\0.0.0 - skipped.
An error occurred retrieving System State files.

Try backing up the system

Try backing up the system state using NTBACKUP and see what are the error messages
