Hi Rafal,

you can delete them with rm. But it's more convenient to use option deleteNotFinishedDirs of

( also supports this option.)

  I discovered your backup software few days ago and I'm really impressed! Good work!

  I've got one question about not finished backups. In my case I'd like to backup periodically (every 1 hour) my computers over iSCSI storage located on my NAS device. I usually use suspend to RAM feature and don't care about time, when I put my computer into sleep mode. When it occurs during storeBackup session, it reports some unfinished backups, eg.
WARNING   2012.08.14 10:21:02 26680 backup </media/truecrypt4/storebackup/home/default/2012.08.14_10.09.21> not finished

Of course I understand, that putting computer into sleep will break WiFi/LAN/iSCSI connection and will abort whole backup session.

My question is what should I do with all these unfinished backups? Should I simply delete them using rm or do something else with storeBackup tools?

Best regards,
Rafal Gwiazda
