Your Operating System (and whether it’s 32bit/64bit)
Windows 7 x64 SP1
Other Backup & Security Software Installed
Avast Internet Security
How you produced the problem
I don’t know if this issue is specifillay related to this beta version but since I’ve installed, I always get an error message saying “Could not load language file” -see attached picture-
I reported another issue in the previous beta version https://forums.comodo.com/beta-corner-cb/comodo-backup-41-beta-bug-reports-t82475.0.html;msg593273#msg593273 -I have no answers yet- and I tried out this new beta to see if this problem was resolved. After uninstalling previous beta and restart the computer, I tried to install the new version. Now, even if I uninstall this beta and install the last release version, I get the same error message.
How you tried to resolve the problem
Uninstalling CB and performing a registry cleaning with Argente and CCleaner.
Screen-shots with the error (if any)
Any other Additional Information (for example, any non-default settings used)
I disabled temporary Avast Internet Security during the installation but the same occurs
I want to share how I fixed the problem that I reported relating to the installation fail -Could not load language file-
Even after cleaning the registry with CCleaner or Argente, the issue persists so I decided to explore the registry manually to find the cause.
These are the registry keys I found and I deleted to fix the problem:
Whenever I try to perform a backup trough the Shortcuts menu of one of my encrypted CBU files, I get a error message telling me the encryption code entered is wrong.
If I try to restore this CBU file and set the password, everything works fine so neither the file nor the password are wrong.
In Settings I tried to use a shared folder as the Default backup location and I received and Invalid location error message. This is working on 4.0
When setting up a new File and Folders backup and try to select a shared folder for the destination, I receive a message that I need to specify a file name. I can type any name in the address bar after the shared folder and the program accepts it. Otherwise, I can go nowhere. The name can be anything like …\shared folder[u]anyname[/u].
The 4.0 version does not require anything like this.
When I finally save the backup as a Custom Profile and attempt to run it I get an error code 30 (write error) and the backup fails. This is the same behavior as 4.0. All other processes and programs I have can read/write to the share without any problems.
By the way, the share I am talking about is a drive attached to the ASUS router RT-N56U and it is setup without password.
In case you want it, my OS is Windows XP Home Edition SP3,
Firewall is Comodo 5.1022…
Antivirus is Avast 7
I created an incremental backup “simple file”, scheduled “service run”, it worked perfectly while CB was not started. As soon as I booted CB (seconds after the end of “Service Run”), it requested to backup as if it had missed the backup. To check, I pressed yes and effectively it did another backup.
It looks like if you don’t remove the option “Prompt user” it wants to backup disregard it did in service run while CB was closed.
1- I noticed, after creating a “Shortcut”, if I create and save a schedule for it, this new backup job moving from “Shortcuts” to Manage Events", doesn’t appear in the “Manage” “Events” until I exit and reopen CB.
Be careful people in using the instant sync (real-time synchronization) at least with simple copy.
I tried it to backup my Outlook Express emails folder. After that, I realised my Inbox had lost half my emails. This was from a list of cumulated good-for-now emails since Oct 2008. My emails 2010 to 9April2012 were gone from my new sync backup as well as from my Outlook Express inbox.dbx (source). Thank goodness I had made a copy before testing.
I unticked this instant sync (real-time synchronization) but it would never give me back the options of “If schedule is missed” and “Run mode”, not even after closing and trying again nor by exiting and restarting CB. And from that moment, CB would constantly synchronise my emails folder backup non stop, one backup after the other every few seconds without me changing anything in the source.
I had to delete the backup job from “Events” and rebuild a new “Shortcut” and reschedule it with no more synch. thank you.
I’m not sure, but the loss of emails in the Inbox.dbx might have happenned while Outlook Express was not exited yet.
The new GUI excepts the network path as the default location etc., so that’s good but when you go to use it e.g. hit the ‘Default Settings’ it doesn’t apply it to the Backup name, it just changes to the first tab - ‘COMODO Cloud.’ When you change to the Network tab, and then select the NAS etc., the file name is missing, where as if you use the ‘My Computer’ tab, the filename is added.
One nice thing would also be to list the directories in alphabetical in the listview box.
