Cobian Failed to Create Destination Backup Directory

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hi,


I have tried to backup loads of times and also in a lot of different directory paths, but it always comes up with the same response: “FAIL”  It tells me 'destination directory' is to blame. 

Any ideas on this? Couldn't create the destination directory "\ServerBackupdatabase 2011-08-0112; 00; 003": The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax are incorrect.

The history file for "Database Backup" is not saved because the result of the backup is empty.

The path to which you are trying to save backup is the real problem here. Check the following things.

  1. The path which you are using is not protected by some sort of read or write permissions.
  2. If this is the case then make sure you have enough administrative privileges so that you can perform the action.
  3. The path that you are using does not exist. Changing the path might solve the problem. Just delete few things and create them again so that you can use it again for other purpose.
  4. The last thing is to check the internet connection settings into the software to see if it is actually connecting or not.

It is because you are running the program as a SERVICE. By default Cobian installs as a SERVICE. Re-install the program as a APPLICATION and the problem will go away.

NOTE: If you have created a few tasks make sure you Save/export them from the file menu before you uninstall Cobian so you can re-import them after the uninstall re-install.
