I have been backing up using both FBackup and the Windows 7 Backup (W7BU)tool.
I was having problems with both with files being skipped or not found but the problem has been resolved with W7BU for which I am now not getting any error reports whatsoever.
The same does not go for FBackup unfortunately.
I am getting 198 warnings associated with 198 files that have been skipped.
I am trying to get to the bottom of which files are being skipped - I have tried having a look at the log file but it is colossal! I don't really know what to search for.
This is very disconcerting. The initial mirror back up of my C: and D: drive (partitions on the same hard drive) took over 14 hours - my hard drive is 500GB and is nowhere near full.
Can anyone help please?
I am not an expert so please explain in simple terms.

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