I have started using cobian backup. Here is the log from my last backup. It should have backed up 20GB but only did 5GB.

Cobian backup error "The system cannot find the path specified" but the path does exist.

2014-07-24 11:35 ** Backing up the task "jlDocuments" **
2014-07-24 11:35 Counting the files for the task "jlDocuments"...

and so on, the same error different files

until the end where it gave me a summary

What should I do? The files are there for sure.

If someone has a better free program feel free to tell me.

  • It seems like a privilege security setting for the application to run as administrator to access user protected documents may do it or some other similar means . Windows often gives this message for security reasons. – Tony Stewart Sunnyskyguy EE75 Jun 18 '18 at 3:26

In Cobain Backup I have found on occasion that I need to recreate the backup options in order for it to function correctly. Try adding these folders manually instead of a top tier folder if the above fails.

Is this an automated or manual backup that kicks off? Do you have folder permissions that may limit these files from being copied? To find out right click the folder and click properties. Then select security. Check that the current user has read/write permissions for the specified folder.
