Hi Pete,

Some older versions of the file have been marked as deleted in this case, 
although the current version has not. That means that at some point in 
the life of this file, probably between these two versions:

000143ac f-Xo-- 2007-05-11T16:12:02 00001 QBWin.log.old3

00014566 f--o-- 2007-05-14T14:37:20 00001 QBWin.log.old3

Box Backup could not access it, and marked it and all older versions as 

Is it possible that this file was really deleted or inaccessible, either 
in it current name or in some previous name before it was renamed to 
QBWin.log.old3? Could it ever have been excluded, or located on a mount 
point that was not accessible at the time? Could it have been opened 
exclusively by a Windows application such as QuickBooks?

Could it be that this file was previously the current log file for 
QuickBooks, and was renamed to QBWin.log.old3? If it was the current log 
file, I would have expected it to be updated, sometimes sporadically, 
sometimes frequently, and if Box Backup detected a change during a backup 
run then it would have backed it up again.

What are the values of UpdateStoreInterval, MinimumFileAge and 
MaxUploadWait in your configuration?

Cheers, Chris.
