Errorcode: FILE_DOESNT_EXIST (3)


I’ve implemented UrBackup in my client Linux Server and Client (Xubuntu 14.04 LTS) and for what I can check, UrBackup is having problems doing backups with files that has latin characters like “Enseñanza” (the Ñ in this case). Example:

2015-09-20 14:29:53(error): Error getting complete file “fPXzfNrAseJOHd5MMxe0|home/gimena/.local/share/Trash/files/Ense” from Errorcode: FILE_DOESNT_EXIST (3)

As you can see, the filename is “Enseñanza”.

Another example: 2015-09-20 14:35:57(error): Error getting complete file “fPXzfNrAseJOHd5MMxe0|home/share/Gimena/Liquidaciones DAUT/2013/Julio 2012- Junio 2013/Tcach, De la revoluci” from Errorcode: FILE_DOESNT_EXIST (3)

Here the file ends with “revolución”.

Is this a encoding problem or someting else (or long path?)?

Thanks in advance.

It’s probably an encoding issue. UrBackup assumes the filenames to be in UTF-8. It is unfortunate that they are not handled as byte-squences, but is hasn’t caused many issues yet.


Thanks for reply.

Is there are any workaround for this?


You can convert the filenames to UTF-8 with


Any plans to fix this In a future?

Thanks in advance,
