Hi,

What is the backup type you use? Please note the Full backup type in FBackup keeps only the latest backup version. When creating a new backup version, the old one is deleted.

Hi,

It seems you use the Mirror backup type.
I see you selected the "Remove excluded or deleted files from backup" option. That will delete from destination the files deleted from sources.
Were those files deleted from sources before running the backup?

Hi,

If you create a new backup job (or you duplicate the existing one), are the files backed up again? as they exists in the backup sources.

Hi
Now I have make many back-up's without any delete of the whole harddisk, so I think perhabs it was the harddisk the problem.
But I have one more problems - I get a error every time - see the atached file - the 3 blue lines.What do I do to avoid this ?

Can Fbackup run on a USB stick without installing on the computer - only installation on the USB stick?

Best regards
Ernfred

Hi,

You cannot back up that folder, please exclude it from Backup Properties->Sources.

You cannot install FBackup on USB, but we have a commercial product: Backup4all Portable which can be installed on usb devices.
