[Box Backup] box backup and not existing directories
Tue, 4 Nov 2008 16:38:28 +0100
if i have a location not existing locally and not existing on the store but
activated as a location in bbackupd.conf. With this configuration box backup
throws this errors on start.
ERROR: Failed to stat file: '/test-192.168.1.87-torsten': No such file or
WARNING: Exception thrown: CommonException(OSFileError) at

- this errors are only printed once. The next backup runs do not consider to
backup this location. That is not good for me. I have locations on remote
storage mounted via samba. So only one mount error and i will never again be
notified that this location is not backed up.
- is this the right behavior, that backup-ok is called even though there was
I attached a little patch that makes box backup to retry this location. But i
dont think that this is a clean way.
Can anybody help me with this?
