I have updated to MacOS 10.14 Mojave and appear to be running into an issue with URBackup. When the backups run I get an immediate failure while the index process is running. Looking at the URBackup log file it appears to be a folder access issue.
0-1537924949-Backing up "Eric" without snapshot. 2-1537924949-Error while getting files in folder "/Users/Eric/Library/Application Support/AddressBook". User may not have permissions to access this folder. Errno is 1 2-1537924949-Constructing of filelist of "Eric_MBP" failed: error - index error 2-1537924958-Backup had an early error. Deleting partial backup.
Once this error occurs the backup process fails.
I’ve looked at the permissions on the directory in question and they are drwx------ indicating that the owner had full access but nobody else. It seems odd that the urbackup client, which is running under root, would have issues accessing this directory. Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue? I’ve tried changing the permissions on the folder to allow all users access but no change, the backup still fails.
Also, why would URBackup stop trying to backup when it gets an access denied message, shouldn’t it just continue on?
The client is version 2.2.6 and the server is version 2.2.11.
