The hot fix doesn't really fix the issue.
It just lets the backup program continue and it still logs this error in the event log and server performance logs as a critical error.
Backup still does not back up non-simple SQL DBs and you need to use SQLAgent to export the DBs to a .bak file. The .bak file is a flat file that can be backed up by the MS backup program.

Hey Ron, I'll pass this on to Sean. I know my backup has been working.

Ah... okay I see what you are needing. As a beancounter who's SQL databases are not the "robust" databases that you probably do, the backup routine of SBS works just fine.

If you need up to the minute backups so that you can do full restore via Full Recovery mode, you will either need third party or use the SQL Enterprise manager to "barf out" the flat file as you noted.

In my case I'll be using the native STADMIN commands to flat file "barf out" the Sharepoint in a flat file as an additional "paranoid" backup.

In fact, I think i might script it :-)
