#63 Support hard links in directories bbackupd defect Jan 11, 2010

Ben Bennett reported the following warning message:

Jun 21 22:23:42 ayup bbackupd[24222]: WARNING: Found conflicting parent ID for file ID 1579976 (/home/fiji/public_html/pictures/49/014 - Nursery.jpg): expected 34689 but found 69964 (same directory used in two different locations?)

The warning is correct, the file is in two locations...

# ls -li '/home/fiji/public_html/pictures/49/013 - Nursery.jpg' '/home/fiji/public_html/family/3/013 - Nursery.jpg'
1579975 -rw-r--r-- 2 fiji fiji 131622 2002-12-18 07:37 /home/fiji/public_html/family/3/013 - Nursery.jpg

I agree that hard links should be supported, and that this is a bug. Please could you get an account in the bug tracker and file a bug?

The reasons for this warning are:

  1. Almost nobody uses hard links on their data files, so nobody

has reported this problem before.

  1. Including the same files in two backup locations (not two

directories) is an error. Backing up the same file data twice would be a waste of bandwidth.

  1. There was a bug on Windows where file IDs were being

duplicated all the time, which was only spotted because I added this warning.

  1. Box Backup uses file IDs to track renaming of files. If you

use hard links then this will not work correctly and will cause your files to be renamed between the two directories all the time. This is the real bug.

I suggest introducing options to either suppress such warning messages altogether (maybe by type if that is possible?) or to reduce the number of warnings of identical type to 1 (like "showing only one of ##"). Something similar must already be implemented for I also read:

"c314-stefan bbackupd[1574]: WARNING: Suppressing duplicate notification about read-error"

This bug can cause data corruption in your backups! Do not ignore it! The warning is a warning for a reason!


#78 Error level for "bbackupquery.exe -u" bbackupd defect May 15, 2012

Using bbackupquery.exe to compare in batch mode ("compare -a -q -c" quit) works fine, and the ERRORLEVEL variable in cmd.exe is set to 2 when a comparison failed.

Adding the "-u" switch to compare non-ASCII file names will cause bbackupquery.exe to NEVER return ERRORLEVEL=2, even if the comparison failed.

Not sure whether this is an issue with cmd.exe or bbackupquery.exe


#17 List files using wildcards bbackupquery 0.12 task Jan 4, 2007

Paul MacKenzie? <nospam@…> reports:

For individual files within a full directory, I find it difficult (and some times impossible) to find the object id in a folder where there are 1000s of files to get the right one / older version. Any suggestions on how I can do a list like:

  • list file*

And it shows all the files starting with the word "file".


#20 bbackupctl reload reports prior settings bbackupctl defect Apr 12, 2007

Change bbackupd.conf timing settings.

Run bbackupctl reload. The "Daemon configuration summary" incorrectly reports the settings from before the changes. Running it again reports the correct settings.

Used notepad to make changes to bbackupd.conf to return timers from short test settings to longer default settings. Then ran bbackupctl reload to set them:

C:\Program Files\Box Backup>bbackupctl.exe reload

Using configuration file C:\Program Files\Box Backup\bbackupd.conf
Daemon configuration summary:
  AutomaticBackup = true
  UpdateStoreInterval = 3 seconds
  MinimumFileAge = 4 seconds
  MaxUploadWait = 24 seconds
Succeeded.

The times reported were the old times. Running bbackupctl reload again now gives the new times:

C:\Program Files\Box Backup>bbackupctl.exe reload

Using configuration file C:\Program Files\Box Backup\bbackupd.conf
Daemon configuration summary:
  AutomaticBackup = true
  UpdateStoreInterval = 3600 seconds
  MinimumFileAge = 21600 seconds
  MaxUploadWait = 86400 seconds
Succeeded.
