I'm running FBackup 4.6.251 and it for most backups to my NAS, it fails (See log snippet below). I believe there is a problem with how it interacts with Kaspersky 2011 firewall. When I pause its firewall, the backup works perfectly; but when I enable the firewall and restart FBackup it fails.
I have experimented with removing directories from the backup, and I have got it to succeed by removing most files, but I'm not sure what about some files/folders causes the process to fail.
I have tried it using FBackup V4.0.125 and it works, however 4.6.251 fails.

I have attempted to configure Kaspersky to allow FBackup to do anything, but it seems to have not helped:

- fbackup.exe placed in trusted zone.

- fbackup.exe given all possible exclusions: don't scan opened files, don't monitor application activity, don't inherit restructions from the parent process, don't monitor child application activity, and don't scan network traffic.

- fbackup.exe shown as having full read/write/delete/create permissions.
My machine is:

Intel Core i5, 12 Gig of ram, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1)

I'm running Kaspersky internet security 2011. I am posting a similar message on their forums.

Please put all .exe files from FBackup installation folder into the exceptions list of the firewall.
