WARNINGS & ERRORS

Postby BIGGSYBOY » February 25th, 2015, 8:43 am

I have recently purchased Get Backup Pro version and have just started using it.
Wanted it to backup my large photo library from one external drive to another.
Done an incremental backup and all went fine, although did take several hours.
As a test I restored 3 files from the backup to a folder on my desktop, again all seemed to go ok, but took ages. On completion the log said "completed with warnings or errors".
? Where can I see what the warnings or errors are, not in Log

Thanks Dave

Hi Dave,

You need to open the Log window (it displays a short log) and click on the Log History button. It opens a folder in Finder where full logs are stored.

Hi Nick
Have tried that it says "25 Feb 2015 13:18 "Photos Backup from 24|02|15" Restoration from archive "incr_Photos_Backup_from_24|02|15_2015-02-24_19-30-52_lp.tar" has completed with warnings or errors…"

But where do I find what warnings or errors?

Hi Dave,

There are no more detail except for log files. What caused an error can be indicated higher in the log. For example:

Code: Select all

Feb 26, 2015 12:16 PM  "Documents" Restoring from archive "/Volumes/data/Documents/incr_Documents_2015-02-10_17-03-31_lp.tgz"...
    "Documents"  command line:   /usr/bin/gnutar  -xzvvf  /Volumes/data/Documents/incr_Documents_2015-02-10_17-03-31_lp.tgz  --no-wildcards  -T  /tmp/tmp.WHUWpQ
Feb 26, 2015 12:16 PM  "Documents"  /Users/nick/Documents/documentation_list.rtf: Not found in archive
    "Documents"  /usr/bin/gnutar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
Feb 26, 2015 12:16 PM  "Documents" Restoration from archive "incr_Documents_2015-02-10_17-03-31_lp.tgz" has completed with warnings or errors...


The summary "has completed with warnings or errors..." relates to an earlier message "Not found in archive".

Hi Nick
Just one more thing.

In the log some words etc are underlined in a red dotted line. What does this mean?

Hi Dave,

You should ignore this. The text editor you used to read the log had the spellchecker activated. The latter underlined words not present in the dictionary.
