I am using a Buffalo, TeraStaion Pro network storage device with the FBackup 4 software for my department database server backup.

I need to backup one of the SQL database backup file, having file extension .bak and size is around 60GB. The backup process was successful, but when I open up the backup folder at the destination disk (TeraStation Pro), there is no file in the folder.

Need advices on why the .bak file was unable to backup. I have try to do both scheduled and mannual backup, same result obtained. Log file shown that zero file was found in the source folder, which I have put a checked on it.

Pls advise. Thanks.

Please note the *.bak files are filtered to be excluded from the backup by default.

You can change that in order to back them up if you go to Backup Properties->Filters. Select the existing filter and press Edit. Delete the *.bak file extension from that list.

Press Save and run again the backup.
