I only have a single cloptset configured to support a number of W2K3 
fileservers (of which this is one). It has exclusions for a number of specific 
files and folders but nothing at the drive letter level and nothing that should 
affect the folder in question.

However, I've uncovered a little .cmd file that is run every night. It contains

dsmc incremental c: g: j: k: 

which makes me suspect this isn't a recent problem! I've added my new partition 
to the end of the command-line so we'll see what happens tonight.

Try starting the backup-archive client GUI, then click the "Backup"
button. Look under the local drives. Does your new file system appear
there?

Using the command line client, run:

   dsmc q opt domain

Does the file system appear there?

Check your options file AND client option set on the server to see if
there is a DOMAIN setting that spells out drives to back up. It is
possible you have a DOMAIN setting (maybe on the server client option set)
that explicitly lists file systems to back up, in which case your new file
system will not automatically be added.

Also check the schedule definition to see if it explicitly mentions file
systems to back up (in the OBJECTS field), in which case the new file
system is probably not there.

The only dumb question is the one that goes unasked.
The command line is your friend.
