Here’s Mike’s last 2 replies, the answer is to basically copy the music files in question to another parent folder and delete the original parent folder. Unfortunately the corruption for one of the albums appears to be coming from the Muzak folder that houses half my collection. So I’m copying the files from Muzak to Muzak new, I have about 4TB of music files in that folder and it’s taking nearly 3 weeks to complete.

This message indicates that this folder was present in the folder listing of the “muzak” folder, but when CCC asked the source for information about this folder, the NAS claimed that the folder did not exist. That’s typically corruption of the parent folder’s folder listing.
Can you copy that folder manually via the Finder? The “new folder and move content” trick should work in this case as well (for the “muzak” folder).

I deleted the 3 albums and backed up again
Did you delete them from the source or the destination? The problem is specific to the source, and given the nature of the error, the corruption may actually be in the parent folders of those affected files, not in the files themselves. I would try recreating the immediate parent folders of the affected items, e.g. supposing the parent folder is named “Blue Oyster Cult”:
- Create a new folder named “Blue Oyster Cult new”
- Drag the content from “Blue Oyster Cult” into the “Blue Oyster Cult new” folder
- Delete the now-empty “Blue Oyster Cult” folder
- Rename “Blue Oyster Cult new” --> “Blue Oyster Cult”
Repeat for the other affected folders as well, then try running the task again. If the errors recur, please submit your logs to me for review so I can take a closer look at your task events and configuration. Choose “Submit Logs” from CCC’s Help menu, then click the Submit Logs button and let me know the submission ID that is presented to you.

Do you mean I should make a new parent folder and move the muzak folder into it?
Yes, e.g. create a “muzak new” folder at the same level as the muzak folder, then move all of the content from muzak into muzak new, then delete the (now empty) muzak folder, then rename muzak new --> muzak. That will get rid of the corruption that’s associated with the muzak folder listing.
