The Pbackup script screams for an overhaul. I'll take a look in the near future.

Thanks for reporting.

I havo to apologize. The fault was not pbackup's, I found out that for some strange reason the file change dates where all 1.1.1970. So, of course it was not included in 'backup recent'.

Subject description: Pbackup Not Loading (Not Starting)
 

I have Puppy 4.31 and all of a sudden pbackup stopped working (not loading). I tried installing the latest 3.18 but it is frozen on the loading screen. Any ideas?

I also occasionally find that the "p" programs freeze the first time I run them after installing a new version.
Did you try killing it and running again? Run from a terminal too, in case it produces some useful output.

To fake a fresh install of Pbackup, you could delete the directory /root/.pbackup. Hope that will help you. Have you any idea what lead to this behaviour?

I am not sure what happened. I was busy with so many things that something I probably touched caused it. Your solution worked though. I deleted that folder /root/.pbackup and then reinstalled and it loaded up immediately.

Thanks to all for the help.

I am getting an error syncing 2 directories and can't find where the logfile is that gives more information on the error.

That is an irritating bug, I should have solved for a long time....The log is not showing up in the finish/error box.

The log is saved in
/root/.pbackup/tmp/pupbck-log

Yes thanks haha. I bought a motherboard with a built in raid controller and you might figure it would automatically run a mirror but no it doesn't so I'm trying both pbackup and pmirror to set it up. Not sure which one will do the job better so doing some tests right now and since that error log didn't show up like you said with a simple button click then I will search the location you mentioned..

Thanks again. I will post my results...

/root/.pbackup/tmp has no files in it even though pbackup notifies of an error and hasn't run on the schedule again since that error is listed on the pbackup main screen.

The only thing in the /root.pbackup/tmp folder is a subfolder named pbackupSYNC which is empty also

Hmmm it's getting interesting now. I wonder what is causing the error.

PostPosted: Sun 01 Aug 2010, 13:47    Post subject: file limit?  

I have a machine I want to reinstall, but before I do I wanted to back it up. The current linux is hosed, but a quick boot with a 4.3.1 CD allows me access to all of the files, currently in /mnt/home. I have a 1.5T hard drive (formatted in NTFS, unfortunately, and I really don't want to reformat for this) connected via USB as /mnt/sdc1.

I've set up a full backup of /mnt/home targed to HD /mnt/sdc1. When I run the backup, the pupbck-files, -dirs, and -links files look fine in geany (although pupback-files is 51M...), but the backup stalls after creating the first directory structure /mnt/sdc1/20100730_backup/Backup_2010-08-01_13.04.49/mnt and hangs there...the other day, I let it go overnight and no other directories or files were added. (FWIW, /mnt/home/mnt/ is empty, so <<backup>>/mnt should be, too.)

Is there a hard limit on number of files for pbackup? Is it having a canary writing to the NTFS drive? Is it just my bad karma? I know I can use tar to get where I need to go, but pbackup looked so slick...

I have stopped the evolving of Pbackup. - 2 years since last update.
This version is just a quick fix to get it going with the latest gtkdialog.
The code is in such a bad shape that Puppy should get a new backup program. - Your challenge!!!!
