"Too many copies running"

Post by EricBJ »

I have 2 systems with registered copies of Backup4all Professional 4.1 build 135.

On one system, running Windows XP Professional on a RAID 1, I have gotten this error 4 or 5 times. I check the Task Manager and there is on one instance of Backup4all running. I run chkdsk /f 2 to 4 times and the problem goes away.

On the other system, also running Windows XP Professional, I have gotten this error once. I have been able to fix it with chkdsk /f also.

What does this error mean? How do I make it go away and stay away?

Please make sure you did not used the same registration key for both computers.
The Backup4all license is per computer, not per user. You need a license key for each computer you use Backup4all on.
Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here: https://www.backup4all.com/backup4all-monitor.html
