Backup Express do not take spaced foldernames
Problem/error seen in PA v. 9.00.33….Backup Express running on XP-Home SP1/(2)
Setting up a PBS to backup two folders i.e. “c:\Documents and settings\Folder1” and “c:\Documents and settings\Folder2” does not result in any archive-file (both folders contain several files and sub-folders) .
By adding one more folder to the backup-list - named without any spaces i.e. “c:\Folder3” - the problem/error does not occur and ALL expected files from …\Folder1, …\Folder2 & Folder3 are added to the archive
(Settings: include subfolders & store relative folder)
Using a dummy-folder & -file makes it work for me - but -…please, corrigate in new versions
Works for me !?
Win2k - PA 09.00.34 test.
If you want to check - link to the test version is in thread :-
If there is still a problem, rename the pbs file to txt and attach it (as I did here).
Inspired by TBGBe’s PBS-file, I have tried using BH in stead of ZIP as archive-format and that makes the difference between (BH) and :mad: (ZIP).
Both of the attached PBS-files works with BH and only one with ZIP (PA v. 9.00.34)
Tried again (now on Win98 though so may be different) - Zip fails IF the option “Add timestamp to backup” is selected.
Turn this option off and I think the pbs works.
thanks for the info!
Zip still don’t work on XP-Home/SP1(2)
OK - Now back on Win2k
Here it appears that the “problem” occurs with the Store Relative Folder setting
Active - Fails
Not Active - Succeeds
(TimeStamp setting does NOT matter) ?!
Maybe there is also a Op Sys difference?
Both (Win 2k) pbs in attachment.
I have tried without activating “Store relative folder” - and IT WORKS (= as seen on Win2K)
adding timestamp does’nt matter on XP either (= as seen on Win2K)
=> Problem only occur with the combination of “path with spaces” & “Store relative folder” & “archive to ZIP” & running on Win2K or XP (Winver. 5)
The issue will be fixed in next release!
please check it with 9.00.35 release:
And make sure you test it a bit so there are no other issues.
Checked 9.00.35 on Win98.
Using Zip_NOT_OK.pbs as supplied by FredeFup (just changed C: to )
PBS now works with both “Add timestamp to backup” and “Store Relative Folder” Active.
