Stop BackupExec failing on corrupt files

I expect there will be a flag for this in future versions, but for now regedit is needed:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VERITAS\Backup Exec\Engine\Backup [For versions 9x and 10x]
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SYMANTEC\Backup Exec for Windows\Backup Exec\Engine\Backup [For versions  11x and 12x]

On the menu bar, select Edit | Add Value
In the Value name field, type in “Fail Jobs On Corrupt Files”
For the Data Type, select REG_DWORD (Figure 1)
When prompted for the Data, type in “0” (without the quotes)
Click OK
