Files and Folders Skipped

Post by wacole »

I have four backup jobs all of which failed for the same reason: "All the files and folders have been skipped. Nothing to backup."

All machines are Windows 7.

I run Backup4All, version 5.x, from a Windows7Pro x64 box.

I can successfully run a backup job which backups up files to the same machine that Backup4All is installed on. The backup jobs which failed are for network attached machines. All network connections test successfully; the logons and passwords are correct.

I've looked at the Network backup tutorial on the support page; it didn't help.

What I think I need is help on setting Windows permissions across network connections. I seem to have brain freeze when tackling this topic.

I was going to attached the logs for the 4 failed jobs, but the forum editor says "the extension log is not allowed."

Thanks very much ... Bill Cole

Please try to run Backup4all using the "Run as administrator" option. Do you have the same problem?
