Re: Google Drive - MAx Path Length etc ?

We've finally got to the bottom of this problem and it's not Backu4all or Google Drive. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/fileio/naming-a-file Windows is limited to a max path length of 260 characters.

Re: Delete Files from Backup

Thanks for the reply. Don't think clean will do the job. I want to keep all the backup versions (they contain many other files that we need). I only want to delete versions (all versions in this case) of particular files within the backup versions. These are multi-gigabyte e-mail files that haven't ...

Delete Files from Backup

Backup4All 7.3

We have a large multi-version incremental backup built up of several years. Several large old files on the backup are no longer required and we don't want them backed up.

Is it possible to delete them from the backup .zips ?

Thanks
Neil

Re: Upgrade 4.8 to 7.3

Thanks, that worked.

I had to quit the application, restart, then go directly to Type - Storage to avoid getting locked in the error dialogue.

Upgrade 4.8 to 7.3

After many years successfully using 4.8 we are looking to upgrade to 7.3 to take advantage of cloud backups.

Can I do this as a direct upgrade install retaining all existing jobs or is it start from fresh ?

Cheers

Using Backp4All Professional 4.8 on Win7 64 Is it possible to rebuild the backup catalogue from the backup .zip files ?
