Re: b4a failing to properly backup files

This is really very odd. I cleaned all backups to assure b4a doesn't replicate old backup files instead of using current ones and made a brand new backup, then verified directly on the zip. The file is still the outdated one from day 14. I looked if there's any GameUserSettings.ini elsewhere, and on...

b4a failing to properly backup files

Something odd is happening. I'm using b4a to backup my Ark single player instance, so that if something goes wrong I can restore the backup from before it happened. But instead, it keeps storing old files, and when I run its restore it restores older files far before the latest backup. Its source is...

Re: Use local catalogs option

Hello. I was answered about this option over a year ago but was unable to find the post. I'm gonna ask here since this thread is about this option. In the past I had an issue that, when I'd restore a Windows backup, b4a would "forget" all backups it had done ever since that Windows backup was create...

Re: Scheduled backups didn't run

I solved it: https://superuser.com/questions/885550/ ... valid-path

For some reason, maybe during a restore, B4a added quote on task > Actions > Start in.

I removed the quote and it worked today.

Re: Scheduled backups didn't run

Thanks for the support. Indeed there are no logs. In Task Scheduler, all of them have as Last Run Result "The Directory Name is invalid". IDK what this directory is. C:\Program Files (x86)\Backup4all 8\bSchedStarter.exe is in its place. Maybe this happened when I restored Win backup and then restore...

Scheduled backups didn't run

All my jobs are scheduled to run daily, B4a one before and after all others. First one starts 5PM and last one is 7PM.

Today none of them ran. There's no apparent message explaining why. How can I troubleshoot it to find out the issue and fix it?

Re: Restore backups after partition restore

Thanks, I'll try that.

I just restored Win backup, and noticed that all backups I had done in past few days aren't listed on Clean list, and indeed the last job I created is lost.

I configured and you suggested and created a new full backup of B4a, I hope next time I restore Windows it will work.

Re: How Long to Keep Files and Folders Backup

Hello, could you explain that in more details? Links to articles are fine. I have a backup job called MailWasher. It uses a plugin as reference for 2 sources: its Registry entries and its AppData folder. I see in destination I have a MailWasher.bkc file. I notice it's a SQLite file, but haven't look...

Restore backups after partition restore

Hello everybody. I have been using B4a for years, and now I upgraded my PC and upgraded B4a too to version 8 and configured it to backup configs of tens of apps. But I have a question. I'm using another tool to backup Win partition. I wanna keep this backup clean and restore it at least once a month...

Customizing backup file names

Hello, one more question. How can I customize file names? As default, it prefixes zip files with a sequential number and an underscore, then adds some description, or the letter C. Instead of the sequential number I want the date and time of the backup. In case of a plugin adding a description I'm o...
