Thanks for your suggestions. After several hours of error search, I finally identified the problem.

I had initially downloaded and unzipped the storeBackup-3.2.tar.bz2 file under Windows onto the NTFS harddisk which I wanted to backup. Simply copying the files to the ext3 destination harddisk did not solve the problem.

Finally I realized that the Windows line endings corrupted the perl files. Unzipping the storeBackup-folder under Linux to the ext3 disk worked perfectly. I have not yet tried if unzipping under Linux to the NTFS disk would also work.

addendum:

please try to start stbuMd5Exec.pl directly. Does this is possible? What permissons are on that file?

Very strange.

Can you do the following:

- store the backup on a linux file system, eg. ext3
- if you change the data on an ntfs filesyste, please double check the time stamps there (you may use llt delivered with storeBackup)

- send me a tar file with the source (maybe multipe because of changes) and target directories (please small examples only) so I can reproduce it

- a detailed description what you have done (you can eg. use 'script')

Please send the data directly via email to my account at web.de.

Thanks, HJC

For some days I tested storeBackup on a friend's computer running an Ubuntu Live CD. Source and destination were two USB HDDs.

The backups were only partly successful because many files were not backed up. Among other things, I tried destination HDDs with Ext3 as well as NTFS. Then I created a test directory with only 2 files in it. I did a back up, stored the log file, deleted the back up default directory, changed the files in the source directory and tried another backup, to find out why some files back up correctly while others don't.

First only Zip-files backed up correctly, exe files were dumped, so I thought there might be some problem with compression.
To be sure I kept the files constant and only changed their names, i.e. file types. Interestingly this has an influence on the backup, however not clearly correlated, sometimes Zip files make problems, sometimes only zip files are backed up. So the problem is probably elsewhere. Perhaps running it from a live CD?

Anyway, files sometimes do, sometimes don't back up. At the end of my tests, only Non-Zip files backed up, exactly the opposite behaviour from the beginning of my tests.

Here are the error messages from the first log file (txt and zip file types):

STATISTIC

So, no file was backed up correctly. Then I changed the name of the first file to .zip and got:

INFO      2011.01.11 21:48:10  6334 Checking checkdisk.zip [new]
INFO      2011.01.11 21:48:10  6334 Checking commander.exe [new]

WARNING   2011.01.11 21:48:12  6334 file </media/USB_HDD25/Test/checkdisk.zip> deleted during backup

So, only the second file was backed up correctly. Changing the name of the first file to checkdisk.exe everything is fine, no backup error.

With the second file called commander.zip, it does not back up.

Checking checkdisk.exe [new]

I attached the complete log files. I would really appreciate you to give me some hint.

Thanks!
