Mirror Job isn't mirroring

Postby LaughingMan008 » Sun Oct 06, 2019 2:25 pm

Ive selected the option to mirror my drive, and even selected the option "Remove excluded or deleted files from backup" and it... doesn't. If I delete a file on my drive, it stays there in the backup. Just with a little red minus symbol next to it in the window on the right side of the screen inside the program. Same if I try to move a folder. The folder gets put into the backup where I moved it, but the old folder isn't deleted.

Hi,

Please send us to info[at]fbackup[dot]com:
- the last backup log
- the .bkc catalog file
- the name and path of such a file/folder which was not deleted from destination.

I have the same problem with fbackup not deleting removed or excluded files, using the latest version 8.4.251.

The same problem has been recurring for years, I think if I delete & recreate the Backup job it may work for a while but eventually it'll break again.

PS I just used wetransfer.com to send you the fkc, backup log and some screenshots.

@ianto39
I just replied to your email.
We need to investigate each case, as this isn't a known issue in FBackup.
