I do a nightly automated backup that includes three folder branches, two of the three are folders off the root (C:/) with many sub-folders of data. The third is the USERS folder tree (including all sub-folders). Sometimes the daily log shows SKIPPING FILE whateverpath because it could not be found. Judging from the chronology of the log, I assume FBackup found the file when it was creating the list of files to backup, but when it tried to add the file to the ZIP file, it was not able to find the file. Is this correct? Usually the skipped files are either log files, cookies or history files in the USERS tree. I assume Windows (Win 7 Pro 64 bit) for whatever reason erased these files and it is not of any consequence, but I wanted to check.

Depending of the file types and locations, they could be temporary files as you suggested.

Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here:
