Yes, that probably was the problem. The warning messages are harmless in 
this case, as they simply indicate that the server didn't update the 
largest used object ID in its database before it exited, so next time it 
ran, when it tried to find an unused object ID, it initially tried some 
that were already in use.

I'm not sure, but I was wondering if you might have been moving files 
around between directories while a backup was running? E.g. was "D:\Foto's 
& Afbeeldingen\webimages\Tiger Extras Win\The Icons\Puft Smart Folder.ico" 
moved from D:\Foto's & Afbeeldingen\Sonja to D:\Foto's & 
Afbeeldingen\webimages\Tiger Extras Win\The Icons? It's a long shot I 

Otherwise I think that the in-memory ID Map database is becoming 
corrupted, but I don't yet see how that could be possible, I'm still 
working on it.

Cheers, Chris.
