Full Backup crashes

Post by Ayok13 »

Hi,

Thank you for this efficient software that saved me many times thanks to bakups made :D

My HDD is dying, with 800Go of data ^^'
I had already 3 tasks which backuped frequently all my most important directories, fortunately.

But, currently, I'm backuping the whole other data into another HDD with a configuration FULL backup Gravity.
Some files are corrupted and can't be copied, I don't care. But the task continued and it was good.
Now the task just stopped on a file in particular, since 3 days ^^' So I have to cancel the task.

I don't want to relaunch this task from the beginning because it ran since 5 days yet.
I would like to resume this task, so it will detect all the files already processed and copied, and continue to copy just all non-processed files.

Please, How is it possible to resume THIS task particularly :?:

There is no easy way to do that, unfortunately. A full backup will just begin from zero and copy all files once again. You could in theory change the backup type to "Incremental" but this will not give you a 100% consistent backup, I think. :|
