Zip error: Out of memory

Post by vanbeek » Tue Apr 02, 2013 10:07 am

Hello,

I recently updated my backup4all to version 4.8 (from 4.6).

Now i get an "zip error:out of memory" error on my Friday backup. I already disabled the "Store temporary catalog data in memory" setting.

My Friday backup has a lot of files, is there any limit of the number of files i can backup?

I have read somewhere in the FAQ i should limit/split the amount of files to 100.000 but that is not really an option since there are over 3 million files in a directory.

I tryed to attach the log file, but even the extension .txt is not allowed

Hi,

You can still try to limit the number of files in each zip file at a lower number.

Sorry, i mis understood the FAQ.

I thought i should limit the backup job to 100.000 files manually.

I found the setting in the compression tab of the backup job settings. limited the amount of files to 100.000 and now the backup succeeded without any error.

Many thanx
