Hi,

Were the backups fine with FBackup 4? Can you send me the last backup log from FBackup 4?

Hi,

You can put the log file into a zip archive and send it to info[at]fbackup[dot]com

Hi,

You sent me the backup catalog, not the last backup log file. Please send me the last backup log file for this backup.
To find it, go to "C:\Users\<your used name>\AppData\Roaming\Softland\FBackup 4\Logs"
If you last ran the backup using version 5 of FBackup, you'll find the log in this place: "C:\Users\<your used name>\AppData\Roaming\Softland\FBackup 5\Logs"

The original hard drive has died and the only backup is from the fbackup that was done . so there is no log file as I cant read the backup.
