 Error log file

 
 by quarkslot on: Nov 18 2009
 
Score 50%

Hello luckyb,

Would it be possible to have a separate log file for error messages so they are easier to find?

In my experience the errors are usually not serious but when you've backed up more than 75,000 files it can be very difficult to find them in the log file!

Thanks

Nick

Hi Nick
:)

I've already improved the logfiles.
Every task will have its own separate log, with the relevant timestamp.
I also integrated a log viewer that shows all errors in red color and has 2 buttons: next & previous error so that it's easier to find them.

This feature will be available in the very next version (0.3.4).

Let me know of what you think about it and if there is still need to produce separate error logfiles. It's not difficult to implement at all

luckyb,

Thanks for your reply.

You are one step ahead of me! I was going to suggest separate log files for each task but didn't want to seem too demanding, luckyBackup is already a great application.

I will let you know what I think when the new version is released.

Thanks again,

Nick

Hi Koronation,

unfortuantely I cannot provide a solution to this :(

I can only give you a hint of what's to blame...

This error is due to some "invalid" characters inside the filename.
This "\#241" is supposed to display differently.

Some people have found a solution with the "convmv" tool to convert the encoding of files to utf-8, but I cannot recommend something I haven't tried.

Hi poliicallycorrect

are you using the new pattern editor (feauture of version 0.3.5) ??

If you're using v0.3.3, let me know of your source and one directory that you would like to exclude so that I can give you an example

I'm glad the pattern editor proved useful :)

Questions regarding patterns were for sure the most frequent.

Could you tell me which specific deb package is out of date. I checked them all and they seem ok !!
Or is it the debian repos that haven't included the new version yet ??

 user defined patterns

Hi Loukas,
Great program, but I am unable to create an exclude pattern using the editor.
I have to insert it manually from info I got a few posts back.
I want to exclude one directory and I can add **/*Dropbox*/ manually but I can't replicate it with the pattern editor.
Thanks.

The pattern refers to a:
Set of directories

name contains:
DropBox

Go deeper in path by:
Any

;-)

Of course you could always type this manually and not use the pattern editor

Thanks,
That works. I was using
# specific directory /Dropbox/

# directory: /home/glen/Dropbox/

final pattern was /Dropbox/

and Dropbox was included in my backup.

So I'm a bit confused how to use
# specific directory.

That is why patterns are confusing to many users.

If you want to anchor the pattern to the hierarchy of files you use a starting "/"
But this "/" actually means the source, not the root directory.

So if your source is /home/glen/
the pattern /home/glen/Dropbox/
actually means /home/glen/home/glen/Dropbox/ !!!
You've got to use the /Dropbox/ pattern to refer to the specific /home/glen/Dropbox/ directory !!

I'm just curious to know why that didn't work though.
Did you have the source declared launching the pattern editor ?
Did you press the add button after inserting a pattern with the editor to the line-edit field ?

I think I did it all right.
Exclude list displays /Dropbox/
and this is what is shown in the validate window

command to be executed:
rsync -h --progress --stats -r -tgo -l -p -D --update --delete-after --delete-excluded --exclude=/Dropbox/
/home/glen/
/media/UBUP/test/

No problem though if I manually insert

rsync -h --progress --stats -r -tgo -l -p -D --update --delete-after --delete-excluded --exclude=**/Dropbox/
/home/glen/
/media/UBUP/karmic_home_latest/

Have a good Xmas.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
