Hello

I'm trying to use pbackup on slacko 5.3.2.8 to backup a directory on one harddisk to a directory on a 2nd harddisk.

I've set it all up and done a full backup which is reported as being successful but there is nothing in the backup directory - see screenie attached.

I've checked through all the settings and cannot see what I'm doing wrong.

Both disks are ntfs formatted - would that matter??

Many thanks for any help anybody can give.

Cheers

I don't use pbackup but...

There's a file called 'config' that holds the needed settings for
the app mirdir that Zigbert uses. I would speculate that
the file 'config' was damaged somehow. Maybe your partition was
filed up when config was being written to and the file couldn't be
saved?? Just a guess.

I recommend my fork of pmirror. I've spent the last couple of weeks
fixing it up. Laughing

I tried pbackup and the two key files seem to be

/root/.pbackup/tmp/pbackup-tmp
/root/.pbackup/profiles/Pbackup_default

I have done some initial work on a new major upgrade of pBackup.

PostPosted: Yesterday, at 02:48    Post subject: pBackup recent backing up complete  

Hi Sigmund,

Am i missing something in using of pbackup ...?

Using pbackup-3.1.9 on dpup wheezy to a dvd (on sr1):
after having done a complete backup of my sda6 partition (vfat), further «recent» backup are backing up «complete»; as also through the Inspection simulation which right shows the recent modified files to be backed-up, but instead backs up «complete» once pressed the «Finished» button ... Question Shocked

Here are the first lines of the Log:
that log has all the files of the to be backed up partition, wheres the inspection log showed only about 20 files (which is realistic as far as i remember the number of modifies/saved files for two days time).
Quote:
/mnt/sda6/ ...
...searching files...
...searching directories...
mount: block device /dev/sr1 is write-protected, mounting read-only

Another thing: see screenshot
I suspect my dvd to ran out of space, what is confirmed by the warning box ... which tells «the temporary storage» to be too small: i dug several times around to find a large enough partition and to run pbackup again, before being aware the dvd disc to be full ... Confused
ps: ...yeeeah ! Embarassed «Log may hold more information»

Thanks for any answer !
Greetings, Charlie
