Well, I feel a bit stupid now.  That was directly on the documentation 
site.  It found and repaired one error and resolved my issue.  Thanks 
for the help Ben, I apologize for wasting your time.

I assume this has been discussed before, but is there a plan to add 
command-line help (e.g. an -h or -? argument that explains what commands 
are possible) to the various Box Backup applications?  Or man pages for 
the apps and config files?
