Yes, but it's only a partial solution. If you run bbackupd with -Werror
then you will only get the last error message, but that may not help you
to resolve the problem as it does not give the reason for the error. On
the other hand, "Resource device" is not a very helpful error code (from
Windows) in this case, so maybe you don't need it.

It should be created after a successful backup on all platforms. If the
backup fails (does not complete) every time then it will never be created.
Is your backup failing to complete?
