comment Disabling SMB2 on Windows Server 2008
Possibly, but the point stands that compatibility is only fixed in specific cases. alaska-software.com/fixes/smb2/overview.shtm has more information, as well as dataaccess.com/whitepapers/opportunlockingreadcaching.html

comment Disabling SMB2 on Windows Server 2008
I deal with a FoxPro ODBC-based app on a few hundred sites. Sites which are pure-XP don't experience any issues, sites which are a mixed client environment (XP, Vista/7) or pure-Vista/7 experience issues until SMB2 directory caching is disabled (Server 2003/XP hosts), or SMB2 and oplocking are disabled (Server 2008/Vista/7 hosts).

Just a note here (in case someone stumbles across this question in the future) to confirm that the issues with SMB2 were absolutely NOT resolved in Windows Server 2008 SP1 and Win7 SP1. Access databases work fine, FoxPro databases will suffer constant corruption with SMB2 enabled, and less frequently with SMB oplocks enabled.

If disabling caching caused the error to change, and the backup is causing the shares to disappear, you can try disabling SMB2 on the server. blogs.technet.com/b/askperf/archive/2008/05/30/… (instructions are valid for Win7)

For troubleshooting, I'd try to stick around and see if this starts happening as soon as that backup runs. Could also check the Security log and see what reason it gives for the failure.

Should be enough if it fixes it. I didn't make it an answer because this is a "WhyTF did that work" (That is to say, it won't break anything, but it shouldn't work, even though it sometimes does)

Disable caching on the share ( net share sharename /cache:None ). If that resolves the issue, SMB2 is the culprit.
