  • Hi,

    When you perform a System State backup operation, you cannot perform a streaming backup of any Exchange Server storage groups that are on the system drive until the System State backup is complete. Additionally, you cannot dismount any databases that are in those storage groups until the System State backup is complete.

    Mostly this error comes when you perform both system state and exchange storage group backup together. To run successful backup you have to perform both backup separately.
