Backup Exec: How to backup DFS on windows 2003 R2

After the installation of service pack 4 of Backup Exec 10d.
I noticed that my backup of the DFS was completely empty.

I made a backup of my DFS root as specified in the lengthy manual of backup exec approximate ~1400 pages!
But all of a sudden Backup Exec seemed to have changed the way they make DFS backups.

The way to backup a DFS is now as follows:

When you create your selection list go to the server holding your DFS go to
[Shadow Copy components] ==> [User Data] ==> [Distributed Filesystem Replication] ==> [DfsrReplicatedFolders]
There you will find your Folders which you want to backup.
