Have you been able to include that change in 2.5?

No, but don't use Volume Shadow Copies with offline files and it should then work.

I need to use Volume Shadow Copy for PST files...

Can I have a part of my backup using Volume Shadow Copy and a part not using it?

Yes, this is a task setting, so you could have 2 tasks instead for one.

Will keep you posted.

I've added a second task for only the OneDrive stuff.

It downloads the "online-only" files which is not at all what I want: this will cause a "disk full" situation on the local disk because there's not enough room for the entire contents of my OneDrive.

IIRC this was not the behavior in 2.4: the online-only files were skipped.

If you use VSC then the offline file will not be backed up (but you will get errors instead)

So back to square one.

I can't do what I want/need: backup only the "available" (not "online-only") files, with no errors.

Errors are reported because there are errors. :shock:

Where do we go from here?

I need a replacement for the File History feature in Windows that Microsoft is deprecating.

This should back up everything that is physically present on the disk, including PSTs open by Outlook, and OneDrive files that are not "online-only." And silently ignore the "online-only" files.
