Backup problem with busy files : LUSENET : Anders Petersson's Freeware Forum : One Thread


I try this backup for backing up important files including my outlook .pst files. My backup is scheduled, but when my outlook is open the file outlook.pst is busy, so outlook.pst is skipped. No problem so far, because it isn't that important that my outlook file isn't backuped for some days. The problem is that it deletes the previous backup from my destination folder. And i need the option to delete old files from the destination because i use no hands backup as kind of a mirroring program.

Hope you understand and can help me.

Hi Vincent.

If you check the backup log, does NHB report to have deleted the file, or is it just a copy error?

Ok, Vincent. If you run the backup without the 'delete old files from the destination' setting - does it still happen? I haven't got any report like this begfore and I'm trying to figure out what's wrong.

Thanks for your quick answer. The logfiles doesn't mention anything about deleting files, just this:

Failed file operations: Error copying changed file: [filename]

But the file that previously was backuped is gone!! Not nice ;)

Cheers! Vincent
