Actually the log file is suppose to be in each backup folder, shouldnt be on the C:\ drive.

Go check and see if the backup folder has the log file or any of the log files, and also do another backup and see if it happens again.

I have one other user who on XP, the RB program will complain it cant find the backup path and only shows a \ and nothing else, yet the backups still work fine. I want to see if these two are related. I havent been able to replicate it so I havent been able to fix it.

Hi!
As can be seen in image,backup folder contains that file,I found it is created directly on drive C: when I use restore option from main application,it also have different size as that one from backup


EDIT:tested also in w8,the same file was created it the same place,
another suggestion:after restore was done you can ask user to restart the system,now there is a messagebox telling to restart,just a suggestion.
thanks.

Yes right now it is only a suggestion, which is silly because you need to reboot as soon as it is restored, otherwise anything else that writes to the registry will right to the old files. I will make an update with an option to have it reboot :-)

As for the log file I am still scratching my head on, it isnt happening on any of my machines or test machines, they are all english versions of Windows, is yours as well?

And in that file is the only information the system info and nothing else? And is that same info in the backup logs that are in the backup folders?

Hi Shane!
Yes all my systems are english versions,seems to me that file is different as one in backup folder
To ease your debug I put there a zip file:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/e7d2qjaf2u6jbyn/files_to_debug.zip
there you'll find: file create on drive C,backup folder and also the program portable version folder with all my settings (all my backups are done in c:\RegBackups ,that folder is hidden)

A good day,thanks.

I found the reason the log is being created on the root of the C:\ drive. It happens when you do a restore and it is my fault.

 In the code the command should be AddToRestoreLogs but instead I had AddToBackupLogs, this will be fixed in the next update :-D

You should be able to select all files again and no longer get that error. I did on mine with the new version and no longer get the error while using the fall back method :-)

Hi,
Am I wrong or manual created backups are also deleted if is enabled "Auto delete old backups",it any way to keep them,for example I want to create a manual backup after system was fresh installed to use it later if needed or to create a backup when something works to use it when it doesn't.
Erunt saved manual backups outside autobackup folder
No problem If there is any possibility,I can also copy manually the backup to another place/folder

thanks

The auto delete cleans up any backups in the folder under the computer name.

So if you ran the tool from a thumb drive and had backups from multiple machines, each backup from the other machines are stored under a folder with the computer name, when the auto cleanup runs it only looks at the folder with the computer name and cleans any old backs from it. Doesn't look at any other folders :-)
