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:

Hi,
What is with the strange file names?

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

Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here: https://www.backup4all.com/backup4all-monitor.html
