Ok I have run 2 back ups and they appeared to do correctly. I then went to my external hard drive just to check and see if they did. One did and one I get the message "The compressed(zipped) file is invalid or corrupted". What went wrong?

Hi,
If the size of the zip file is more than 4 GB, that means FBackup has used zip64 technology (which allows unlimited zip file size).

You can open it only with Winzip 9.1 or later.

I'm not sure this is the right place to ask this question. I have been using FBackup for a year and have just noticed that the destination folders still contain files that have been deleted from the source folders - they're growing exponentially. I can't find out how to get the two folders to mirror each other.

Hi,
Do you use the Mirror backup type?

If yes, please open Backup Properties->Mirror page and check the "Remove excluded or deleted files from backup" option.

Press Save and run the backup.
