0xe000fe34 - A checksum of the data has failed, during the Verify portion of the job when backing up VMware Virtual Machines

When backing up VMware Virtual Machines the job may fail with 0xe000fe34 - A checksum of the data has failed.  This error may occur if the Backup is configured to use Software Encryption or Software Compression, the backup is targeted to a tape device, and the size of the backup forces the job to span across multiple tapes.  If you run a manual verify of this data, it will also receive the same error message.
