I’m using UrBackup since several months. Unfortunately it seems to have problems with continued backups and file locks. Since one month no backup is executed although the most files were transferred certainly successfully. Wouldn’t it be possible to backup all files available instead of letting the complete backup fail just because one file is locked or some other minor error occurs at the end? What is done with the data which was transferred for several hours to the server? Is it lost? The last successful backup is from 02/19/17 13:55.
From simpler backup solutions by just copying files I would have at least all files which could be read and non readable files would have been ignored. The current situation I have for UrBackup is that I have no backup since one month. What can be done here? One file which is permanently locked is a 100 GB virtual machine image which is used all the time by Oracle’s VirtualBox and is constantly updated. I would have thought that with snapshot mechanisms and shadow copies a consistent snapshot can still be taken. Is this the case?
Here are the errors I see:
Level Zeit Nachricht Fehler 03/21/17 13:41 backupcom->DeleteSnapshots(dir->ref->ssetid, VSS_OBJECT_SNAPSHOT, TRUE, &dels, &ndels) failed .VSS error code VSS_E_OBJECT_NOT_FOUND Fehler 03/21/17 13:41 Deleting shadowcopy failed.

Also the image backup has failed although I’m using the CBT version:
Fehler 03/21/17 04:54 Backing up System Reserved (SYSVOL) partition failed. Image backup failed Fehler 03/21/17 04:54 Backup failed Fehler 03/20/17 23:43 Error on client occurred: Creating Shadow drive failed. Stopping. Fehler 03/20/17 23:43 Backup failed
The client is running on Windows, version 2.0.38 cbt. I guess it is updating automatically, because it is configured so. The server is version 2.1.18
