Small Business Server 2008 Backup failure

Just recently I have had to carry out a bare metal restore on my Small Business Server 2008 setup in my home lab.  I had to migrate my email over to Microsoft’s BPOS offering to ensure I could still gain email access for the family.

Now after finally restoring the system from my Windows Home Server (v1) backups as the built in SBS backups failed miserably with BSoD’s and failed booting.

Having now restoring the server I have been presented with this error – Creation of the shared protection point timed out. Unknown error (0x81000101)

Or a screenshot below:

Well I have tried the hotfix from Microsoft – http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956136 but got the error that this hotfix was not applicable to this Operating System.  I assume this is either to do with Windows 2008 Service Pack 2 being installed or due to the fact that this is a Window Vista hotfix.

I am re-running a manually backup to see if this has any effect.
