Application Log File Format

Post by R_Edwards » Thu Aug 26, 2010 3:15 pm

After upgrading from v3 to v4 last week I noticed the application log file (Backup4All.log) was mal-formatted in Notepad. Below is a sample:

------[ START OF SAMPLE ]------
Backup job "Library" at 8/16/2010 6:27:03 AM

Backup:
Total number of files added to backup: 1
Total size of files added to backup: 284 KB
Number of files excluded : 0
Next scheduled backup: 8/16/2010 9:30:00 PM
Backup completed successfully at 8/16/2010 6:27:48 AM with 0 error(s), 0 warning(s)

________________________________________________________________________________
08/16/2010 - Install New Version of Backup4All v4.x (was v3.x)

------[ END OF SAMPLE ]------

Any ideas why this is happening?

Hi,

What version of Backup4all 4 you installed?
Do you have the same problem for the backup job? View->Job Logs->Last backup log.

I have v4.4 Build 214

The problem does NOT appear to effect the individual backup reports. This is only happening for the "Backup4all.log" file (View, View Application Log).

I'm going to delete the file and let the program make a fresh version.

After deleting the file and letting the Backup4all make it from scratch it appear OK. :D

I did look at the file with EditPad Pro. When I switched it to Hex Mode I noticed the spaces were really 00h not 20h. I told EditPad Pro to search for 00h and replace it with 20h. Then switched back to text mode and the file looked OK.

I have no idea why this happened or how it started but it appears OK now.
