Access is denied running script for a Rotating backup scheme

Post by angelo_lopes » Mon Nov 28, 2016 11:14 pm

Hi

I am getting a "Backup aborted. Reason: Before Action returned exit code 1" (???) message
running a Rotating backup scheme configured following the tutorial.

I have Windows 10 Pro full upgraded 64-bit, and my account belongs to Administrators group. Home computer, only account enabled. Running the batch without elevation I see Access is denied.

With elevation I see The file or directory is not a reparse point
http://www.lopesdasilva.com/Diino/outro ... _admin.png

I gave full access to C:\DiskMount folder. I must be overlooking something, but can't find what it is. Can you please help me?
Thanks

Regards, Angelo

Hi,

You can specify the exit code at the end of your batch file:
EXIT [/B] [exitCode]

Example: exit /B 0

Hi, Support

Thanks for your reply though I did not understand what you mean by "[i]You can specify the exit code at the end of your batch file[/i]".
I tried exit /B 0 on the last line of my script, and when I run the batch either on a normal command prompt or Administrator command prompt just for testing, the batch simply shows exit /B 0 after displaying messages like:
The file or directory is not a reparse point.
The directory is not empty.
The parameter is incorrect.

Again, I get the access denied message, and when scheduling Backup4all to run on shutdown I am not running Backup4all as administrator...

Only me? I do not believe I am the only guy on this planet running Backup4all on shutdown :)

Hi,

Is the batch file correctly written?

Hi,

Well, I think so. Here it goes:


---------------------
REM unmount first
mountvol C:\DiskMount /D

REM try mount first drive BIG WD (it will mount label G); fails if disk is not online
mountvol C:\DiskMount \\?\Volume{e8900649-0000-0000-007e-000000000000}\

REM try mount second drive SMALL WD MyBook (it will mount label G); fails if disk is not online
mountvol C:\DiskMount \\?\Volume{00021365-0000-0000-007e-000000000000}\

pause
exit /B 0
pause

Hi,

Instead of "exit /B 0" try to use:
ping localhost -n 1 >null
exit 0

Hi

I tried it and it did the trick.
I am sad :( because I have no idea and even lurking the net I couldn't find it what these lines do, though
ping localhost -n 1 >null
exit 0

That said, I have two disks on my computer. One 250 GB SSD and one 250 GB HDD. Only personal stuff. No Games, no multimedia editing.
C:\ is the SSD for OS and programs, E:\ HDD is for data. All data profile folders are redirected do this second disk, and this is what I want to backup.

Log shows:
[10-Dec-16 9:08:54] Shadow copy created for drives C:,E:
Backup aborted. Reason:
Not enough free space in backup destination.
Next scheduled backup: Not scheduled
Backup aborted after 1:29 minute(s) at 10-Dec-16 9:08:54 with 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

I found Backup4all rotating backup scheme reading your faqs, but since my two USB disk that I rotate every Thursday always receive the same drive letter, I am going to open another post with some questions regarding rotating USB disks without mounting them do disk folders.

Thank you for your cooperation :)
