Fbackup 5 just stops when it cannot create a file (no Skip)

Postby wildetudor » Wed Nov 27, 2013 10:08 am

Hello,

I never had this problem before updating, but with the latest version that I just updated to (5.0, b245, free version), Fbackup will, at some point during the backup, come up with an error saying that "cannot create a file when that file already exists". I don't think this is the case, as this was a new backup rather than an increment of an existing backup. Rather, I think that the problem might be that the total path (including file name) might have been too long.

Regardless of the cause of the error, the software does not give any option to skip the current file, instead you can only either Retry (which of course won't do anything) or just Abort the entire backup!

Perhaps in the next version Skip & Skip All buttons can be added ... ? Otherwise, for now, is there any workaround so that I can proceed with my backup without having to manually search for all possible files that have too long a path?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Strange, as my email hasn't bounced back. Just sent you another one.

Could you please maybe check your spam/other type of filters? I don't see how also my 2nd email would not have reached you.
