Hello Roy:

> Good job! 

Chris is indeed doing a great job with Boxi: I only run 3 commands to
compile the resulting source and upload the .exe to a web page.

This is a debugging message and not really meant for the end-user: it
indicates that there is no data available to create the restore tree, which
is correct: you said that the configuration was wrong, so boxi did not find
any data to restore.

I agree that the message should change for non-debug builds, and actually
disappear alltogether: if there is no data to be restored, simply show an
empty tree control. In fact, perhaps boxi should prevent you from trying to
backup, restore or compare if the configuration does not work?

I will add this as a feature request on the official bug tracker [1].

Thanks for reporting the bug. Could you please try if you can browse the
tree with the bbackupquery.exe text interface and list the contents via
"list -r"? In addition, would you mind adding the bug to the official bug
tracker [1]?

Thanks in advance, Achim
