Hi, I've been using FBackup for several years and it's an excellent product!

I've recently run into a problem when creating a mirror backup from one external drive (f:)(NTFS) to another (g:)(FAT32). The source contains my iPhone/iPad backup directory. The backup runs for a few hours and completes about 70% successfully, but returns about 11000 warnings in the log file which state;

Destination error (code 82). The directory or file cannot be created. (G:\MobileDeviceBU\74e1b2ca1b145b8803cfca75417a8dffe00210cf-20111016-114905\fffdabcd3e3f03783a8728abdda29ec2136dcd36). G:\MobileDeviceBU\74e1b2ca1b145b8803cfca75417a8dffe00210cf-20111016-114905\fffdabcd3e3f03783a8728abdda29ec2136dcd36.

There are no problems with disc space. As indicated above, about 70% of the backup is written to the destination G: drive successfully.

I was running FBackup 4.6.253

Any ideas or suggestions?

Many thanks,

Can you manually create that long path in destination on G: drive?
