During backup I get errors for files "access is denied"

Post by jlouk27 »

I have setup a Cobian task to backup the C:\Windows folder.
However I get multiple errors in the log file related to the folders C:\windows\system32\winevt, C:\windows\system32\wbem
The error message in the log file is like: "Couldn't copy the file GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy10\Windows\System32\winevt\... access is denied".

Note that I have put those 2 folders above (winevt & wbem) in the Cobian backup task's Filter list (to exclude them from backup) but Cobian still tries to access these folders and I still get the "Couldn't copy the file ....access denied" errors.

Can you help either to eliminate those 2 folders from the backup task or stop getting the "access is denied" errors.

Thank you.

Do you add the directories using the Add directory button or using the Add mask? ..Interesting. I'll need to try this one but in my machine those files are copied without problems.

I used the Add directory option.

I use Windows 10 version 20H2
