I updated my original post with the output of the two commands, I do not know what I am looking for so I know what to disable.

I did, now its a matter of decoding what it returning. VSS is something I have never worked with before.

I am on Windows 7 Professional, I do not have a Shadow Copies tab. The only thing I can think of is the Previous Version tab but I can only turn it on and off, there is no way to schedule it.

This also happens with my C drive when I was using a database on C. Where would I go to shut it off/change the scheduelling.

Doing it over the network looks like the solution I will end up doing.

Unfortunately I can not upgrade this instance, I have two instances this one and a R2 instance, on the R2 I do use native compression.

If I mounted a iSCSI device? do the same issues apply?

For a batch job running at 2 AM that maybe inconveniences one person a week, yea.

Hmm, I do immediately just transfer the files anyway to another computer. This may be my solution, but I will leave this open for a day or two if there comes better suggestions.

I just ran it by the higher-ups and they rather have it go slow than spend money on making the backups run faster :(

Would using windows file and folder compression free up I/O resources at the expense of CPU resources, or would it not make a difference?

Unfortunately this is a 1U server and all the bays are full and used in a RAID configuration. there is also a issue with the USB controller not showing up in hardware devices (that is the reason it is running on the same disk, it used to go to a external drive, now it gets backed up locally then FTPed to another machine.)
