Hi Mark,

you can delete those unfinished backups with rm -r.

If you're too lazy to do this :-) , use option deleteNotFinishedDirs of storeBackup.

Also use option autorepair to correct any inconsistencies if you are using option lateLinks.

Regard, Heinz-Josef

First, thanks much for making this tool. I have been using it for almost two years and have successfully restored (the real test :-)

I have a script which I run which runs storeBackup. On occasion, I have interrupted the backup process.

As a result, when I run the script now, I see warning like this telling me that a November 2017 backup didn't finish:

WARNING   2018.03.02 10:00:25 13056 backup </media/mark/EXT2GB/storeBackup/Home-NoMedia-with-large-EXT2GB/2017.11.16_11.46.50> not finished

Having some understanding of how storeBackup works, I'm thinking I can safely ignore these. Is that right?

Also, is there a way to delete this incomplete backup?

Thanks much!
