Stream write error - differential backup

Post by matheusCS » Mon Jun 24, 2019 10:54 pm

Good night!

Guys, I made a full backup of some folders on my computer using Zip compression. Now I'm trying to do a differential backup but I get the error "ERR 2019-06-19 13:56 An error occurred when creating or updating the compressed .zip file:" Stream write error ".
Can you help me with what might be causing this error?

Thank you!

Zip backups are so fragile (that's why they are discouraged), so it's hard to pinpoint the cause. I would make a guess: is the destination located on the network on another computer? If you change the destination to some other partition in your own computer, do you get the same error then?
