I have scheduled a full backup weekly and an incremental backup daily.
None of the scheduled backups are working.
Backup only works if I do a manual backup.
The weird thing is that on Backup’s home page, it says it did the daily incremental backup but there is no backup file. I have searched all my drives for all files with a .cbu extension , but the only file that exists is the one I did manually.
If you set the same destination for incremental as the full backup, the incremental backup will be stored in the same cbu file.
If you open the cbu file you should see multiple snapshots in Restore Step 2.
Each snapshot represent a different backup.
This is a new feature in CB 3.0, to store multiple backups in the same cbu file.
The analysis show that the backup process fails with code 2.
And it seems to be caused by inclusion/exclusion filters or email notification, and the way the schedule information is saved into registry. It might be corrupted.
You said when you manually run the backup it completes without error. Do you mean you go to manage and click “Backup Now” on an existing scheduled job or do you recreate the entire job?
Please describe other non-default settings you made in each backup step so we can reproduce the issue.
Well, after the manual full backup, the scheduled incremental backup worked fine 2 days in a row. Then today, I checked and it only got to 3% and gave an error message that said: Backup process failed with error code 59.
This error was might be caused by special files (sparse or reparse). Our QA department is try to reproduce it.
If you can reproduce it please follow the above steps and post the debug.cbu file here or email the file to me .
