Known Bugs

NOTE: Now that Box Backup development is hosted in this Trac system new problems should be raised as new tickets? rather than adding them to this page. This page is maintained for historical purposes only.

Box Backup 0.09

Time Zone Problem

The client does not handle time zones correctly. Two issues fall out of this in time zones other than GMT. First, bbackupquery reports unexpected timestamps. Second, files will not be backed up on the expected schedule. This may apply only to the Win32 client. See this thread for details. (Submitted 2006-01-18 by Pete Jalajas.)

Store Limits

Check that the store info file is not written anyway when the account cannot be locked.

Query Crashing

On BoxWin version 0.09, bbackupquery restore name-on-server local-dir-name crashes when parent of local-dir-name doesn't exist. For example, trying to restore to c:\tax\wfx32\clients crashed the query window because c:\tax\wfx32\ did not yet exist. bbackupquery restarted fine and restore completed successfully after creating c:\tax\wfx32\ .

The instructions at http://www.fluffy.co.uk/boxbackup/restore.html currently say:

  • "For each location you want to restore, type restore name-on-server local-dir-name. The directory specified by local-dir-name must not exist yet."

They might instead say:

  • "For each location you want to restore, type restore name-on-server local-dir-name. The directory specified by local-dir-name must not exist yet, but its parent must exist."

Restored Files Date Stamps

On BoxWin version 0.09, the date stamps of restored files are the current time, not the datestamp of the original file (or of the time when the file was backed up).
