This issue occurs if one of the following conditions is true:
- The Eseback2.dll file and the Esebcli2.dll file are missing.
- Group Policy processing prohibits the Backup Operators group and the Administrators group from backing up files and folders.
To resolve this issue, follow these steps.
Step 1: Verify that the correct Exchange Server .dll files are loaded
Verify that the Exchange Server .dll files that are required to display the Microsoft Exchange Server check box are loaded. To do this, follow these steps:
- Start Windows Backup.
- Start the System Information tool. To do this, click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Information.
- In the System Information Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in, expand Software Environment, and then click Loaded Modules.
- In the right pane, double-click the Name column to sort the modules by name.
- Verify that Eseback2.dll and Esebcli2.dll appear in the list of loaded modules.
Step 2: Verify that the effective Group Policy allows for the backup of files and folders
Verify that the effective Group Policy for the Back up files and directories user right enables the Backup Operators group and the Administrators group to back up files and folders. To do this, follow these steps:
- Start the Local Security Settings MMC snap-in. To do this, click Start, click Run, type secpol.msc, and then click OK.
- In the Local Security Settings MMC snap-in, expand Local Policies, and then click User Rights Assignment.
- In the right pane, double-click Back up files and directories.

- In the Select Users or Groups dialog box, type Backup Operators; Administrators, click Check Names, and then click OK.
- Click to select the Local Policy Setting check box for the Backup Operators group and for the Administrators group if these check boxes are not already selected, and then click OK. Then, update Group Policy on the local computer. Alternatively, restart the computer. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

If this check box is not selected for one or both of these groups, you must troubleshoot Group Policy settings to determine which Group Policy is overriding the local security policy.
