I recently installed the Qnap application on my NAS and have connected a few clients, but keep getting errors when they try to backup. It keeps saying the following:
Connecting to ClientService of "AP-PC" failed - CONNECT error during filelist construction Backup had an early error. Deleting partial backup. Indexing files failed, because of error
Looking at other backup attempts, leads to the next issue from this error:
Following symbolic link at "C:\Users\All Users" to new symlink backup target at "C:\ProgramData"
If you see my list of filter below, it should hopefully have not backed up those folders, I also have “follow symlinks” off in settings, but neither that, nor the filters below are stopping the backups from creating those folders. (there is nothing in them since the backup seems to be failing anyways).
*.pst,*.ost, *\ProgramData\*, *\All Users\*, *\AppData\*, *\Temp\*, *\Public\*, *\Users\Default\*, *\Default User\*, *\All Users\*
The link below shows that the “Application Data” folder seems to just keep on going, recreating the symlinked folder structure over and over.
How can I make it ignore the Symlinks, and also stop backing up all the default directories and such within the C:\Users folder?
If anyone has some insight, I would greatly appreciate it.
