Devan_K Posted October 17, 2002 Report Share Posted October 17, 2002 Over the past 10 days, I have been trying unsuccessfully to eliminate the copying of certain files that are raising errors in my log. The errors are fairly common and include error 1020 - (sharing violation), and error 1111 - locked range conflict. My simple solution to this is to simply not copy these files. These files are generally system files that don't need copying as well as other program files that are also open. I know Retrospect cannot backup an open file so I have tried modifying the "selecting" section in the scripts. Currently I've marked Include everything but always exclude files matching Windows "folder" path matches pattern c:\Program Files\FileMaker\Filemaker Server 5.5\Current or matching Windows "file" path matches pattern c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader\*.* or matching Windows "folder" path matches pattern c:\winnt * Note: By "folder" or "file" in the above script, I've simply mean the icons I've selected. When I test this selector and select the appropriate volume, the result shows a checkmark beside all the files OTHER than the files or folders I selected for exclusion. Beside these files is an open box. This indicates to me that the files will NOT be backed up. However, when the script actually runs in the evening, I continue to get the same errors. The software continues to attempt to back these files up. WHY??? What must I do to eliminate this problem. I want to do it by eliminating these files from the backup process. I have verified that the correct backup script has been modified (in fact I've modified them all now). I have tried modifing the Universal Name condition to absolutely no satisfaction (there it won't even identify the files I have tried to eliminate). This problem is occuring on the backup server and not on a client. I'm using Retrospect 5.5 Server with 6 clients and a Windows 2000 OS. The paths are correct, there are no typos, etc. What am I doing wrong! Please someone help me before I throw this thing out. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
