I have been receiving this error on my SBS 2003 R2 server (with SP1):

Error category : Resource Errors
Error : e000fedf - A failure occurred reading an object.
For additional information regarding this error refer to link V-79-57344-65247

If you follow the link it will redirect you to Symantec’s site. Instructions found there will direct you to enable debug logging on some of the services.

The information found there will give you an example, showing the the file sfcfiles.dll as being corrupt. I followed the instructions and coincidentally found the exact same file to be corrupt on my server as per the log files generated during a backup of the system state.

I compared the version of the file on my server with another healthy server and found that the MD5 hash of the two files differed. I copied the healthy file onto my server and ran another backup of the system state, but the problem persisted.

Symantec forums directed me to re-install Windows Server – SP1 which solved the problem.
