Which version do you recommend that I reinstall. The latest seemed to cause the problem so perhaps an earlier version?

Hi,

That is a false positive, we contacted Microsoft about that.
We made a new release which is no longer detected as a virus.
Please install the new version 9.8.708.

Keep in mind, if any of the false positive files have been quarantined by your anti-virus program you may have to first restore them in order to complete the installation of the new version...otherwise you may find your installation will hang.

Before I knew about your fixed version I uninstalled and reinstalled the older 9.8.682 version of fbackup that last worked for me. I also had to throw out my entire destination backup, as it seemed corrupted and I still got hung trying use it. Had to make a completely new backup job.
