Empty folders being skipped in backup.

Post by Brand »

This issue relates to Fbackup version 5.0 Build 436 (and some prior versions).

Empty folders are not being backed up. This causes the backup verification test to report "Warning: Folder [foldername] not found in backup, skipped." warnings.

It is important that even empty folders are backed up to maintain folder hierarchy structure. On a restore, programs might react unpredictably if an expected folder is not present.

Hi,

FBackup should back up empty folders with no problems.
Do you have the same problem if you use build 5.0.450?
If yes, please send me the last backup log to info[at]fbackup[dot]com
