Get Backup 1.6 error while creating Backup

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I'm using Get Backup 1.6(179) and I got an error message after the backup creation completed. 2012-03-05 23:16:20 +0100: Building of backup archive "full20120305210124n.tgz" has completed with warnings or errors…

I searched for the log file by using MS Word but nothing found.What is the trouble going here? Do I need to change any settings in Get Backup?Prior to this manual backup I have edited my project named "Bilder" by making following changes.
I removed the old iPhoto library in an internal hard disk and added a new library from external hard disk. I deselected the old in Get Backup "Files and Folders" list. Selected used "Add Files" to find the new. Still the iPhoto library is in the internal drive. But when I see everything is stable I am going to delete it to get the space of 120GB on my drive.
I moved iPhoto library from internal drive to external one and started it by double clicking after the copying process completed.
Here is the link for Apple-note;
I am waiting for some solution for this.

Get Backup 1.6 error while creating Backup


I think maybe that’s the problem here. Your backup program can not make a full backup of your system getting its source from your computer’s internal hard drive and from your external hard drive. Or maybe the error occurred because you deselect something from the internal drive. The way you move the library of your application, iPhoto, to its new location and double-clicking it there after all files are copied is correct. Maybe the reason for having errors on your backup file is that you deselect one [1] particular folder from your internal hard drive in the backup application even though you are doing a full backup of your whole system. A full backup means selecting all contents of the drive. And this is not the case here.

Try doing the backup again to replace the previous backup copy and maybe remove the said problem in the backup file. Be sure that you completely move or transfer the whole library to its new location in the external drive. When you are sure that the transfer is complete, delete the current iPhoto library from the internal drive to free up some space and avoid deselecting it from the backup software. When this is done, try doing the backup again and be sure not to deselect something from your internal drive again.
