Hi (first poster)
I’m running a predefined CBU file for backup from a local drive on to a external harddrive.
It is a incremental backup with a couple of source folders and one destination path.
What happens is that the path actually changes from time to time. I think after about the 2:nd or 3:rd time I run the backup CBU file it changes the destination path to root drive folder.
If it is of any help, here is the cbu file in text
/backup_operation /type filesandfolders /source "Z:\folder|Z:\anotherfolder|Z:\yafolder|Z:\lastfolder" /simplecopy /compressionlevel low /destinationtype destinationtypediskfile /destinationpath "F:\myDestination\" /backup_type incremental /parent_incremental_snapshot_no -1 /parent_backup_storage_type destinationtypediskfile /parent_backup_path "" /diskusage normal /processorusage normal /log_file "F:\myLogfile.log" /log_method "create"
As you can see, Z: is the local source harddrive and the destination is on F: drive which is the exernal drive.
What happes in the first couple successful backups is that it appends “DRIVE_Z” into the destination folder path like F:\myDestination\DRIVE_Z\ and does not save in F:\myDestination, example:
That is ok, I can live with that appended “DRIVE_Z” folder structure, not pretty though
But it is not ok when, after the 3:rd backup or so it saves in F:\ root instead! Example:
Now I have F:\myDestination\DRIVE_Z\ and F:\ as destination paths, double the space is taken as of result of it and I don’t know which files are current or not.
All I ever do is that I run the same cbu file and the external drive is always referenced as F:, no error messages at all only “Success” messages.
This bug must be solved! This bug that I call Mr Haphazard destination
