FBackup 7 still not deleting files

Postby casanna » Fri Dec 29, 2017 5:16 pm

I've used Fbackup for a few years now and, at first, it worked great. As of approximately 6 months ago, it stopped deleting files in the backup that were no longer on the source drive. I use this particular drive every day, so there are always both additions and deletions to the file structure. My backup of this drive, because it is not deleting the files, has become massive. Almost double the size of the source drive. I've noticed there are a few threads asking about this issue, but no clear answer, other than there must be additions to the drive before it will properly do a backup. (which, in my case, there are)

I've upgraded to Ver. 7, but still have the problem.

Before I go to a different backup program, does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks.....

Hi,

There is no known issue about that.
Please send us the last backup log and the .fkc catalog file for that job to info[at]fbackup[dot]com, to find what the problem is.

Hi,

You can find them in the backup destination folder.
