using FBackup Version 4.5 Build 229.

just bought new Verbatim external hard dreve.


FBackup works ok and does the job until the end when it ask whether I wish to see log.

If I say Yes or No, FBackup just sits there and although I can move the cursor, cannot close Fbackup or any part of system. Can only shut down by Windows XP Task Manager. I get the box saying FBackup not responding. I have to restart computer to get things back to normal.


If I use a competitors backup program, problem doesnt occur.


Any advice

Hi,


How large is the log file?

To find it, go to View->Job Logs->Open log folder.

Hi,


For Notepad, that seems to be very large. Please try to use EditPad Lite or Notepad++

Hi

I've just found out why the Log Folder is so large. It seems I backed up everthing apart from Windows itself. So a real everything apart from the kitchen sink. I think that explains the problem.
