Backup Exec Job Failed on corrupt files [resolved]

Here is how to prevent Backup Exec to fail on jobs that back up corrupt files.
This involves editing the registry and might harm your computer proceed with extreme caution.


Start regedit.
Locate the Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VERITAS\Backup Exec\Engine\Backup
Find the dword: Fail Jobs On Corrupt Files you'll notice it is set at 1. modify it to 0.

Thats it now your job will say completed with exeptions much better that failed (since the item was already corrupt to start with so there is no need for backup exec to fail)
