Error: Backup aborted. Reason:

List index out of bounds (-1)


I have received this message on two completely separate installations on two computers running XP at distinct work locations. I am trying to backup a flash drive with about 12 gb data onto the c: disk. The first installation was a "full" backup and successfully created the first backup, but afterwards it displayed this error. The second was a "mirror" backup and never successfully completed the initial backup.


I can't supply the entire log since file names have confidential information. Here are relevant parts. I substituted LNAME FNAME for an actual name in this log:

AFTER THIS ALL FILES ARE RECORDED WITH COMPLETE PATHS. THE NEXT STRANGE THING I NOTICE IS MACHINE LANGUAGE APPENDED TO A FEW FILE NAMES:

[2/23/2012 1:13:57 PM] Found folder E:\Hosp_Centers\MPC\LNAME FNAME\Clinical Notes\.p ║Ñ

[2/23/2012 1:13:57 PM] Found folder E:\Hosp_Centers\MPC\LNAME FNAME\Clinical Notes\b░%═!9)

"╓.Éh


THEN WE NEAR THE END AS THE MACHINE LANGUAGE STOPS FOR TWO FILES

BEGINS AGAIN FOR TWO FILES, AND THE PROCESS ENDS [NOTE:I LOST THE LOG!! THIS IS

FROM A LOG CREATED 10 MINUTES EARLIER]

Hi,


What is with the strange file names?

Do you have the same problem if you use an administrator account?
