Strange backup problem

Post by vlk »

Cobian Reflector 0.9.42 BETA

Folder contains 2 files. First one ~30 GB, second one ~10 GB. Its content and names changes every day. Created task must backup folder to ftps server every night. When I run task manually both files are uploaded without problems. Scheduled task uploads first file, but on the second file gives an error:

An error occurred while uploading the file "E:\Backups\202111112300.bak" to "/Backups": Input string was not in a correct format.

If I select in ftp server advanced tab "strick return codes" the situation the same but the the error becomes:

An error occurred while uploading the file "E:\Backups\202111092300.bak" to "/Backups": NOOP ok. (code=200)

Why this could happen and it is possible to solve this problem?

Very strange. Manual backup is just forcing the scheduler to just add the task to the queue.

What kind of server are you using?

Cobian runs on Windows 2016 server, ftp server - vsftpd 3.0.3 on Ubuntu.

I explored the problem more deeply. Luis seems to have been right. There is no difference between manual and scheduled backups. When I tried to upload 2 big files manually I observed the same problem as with scheduled backup - first file uploads successfully, second one fails. If I upload small files they all uploads successfully. I attached the pieces from vsftpd.log file which maybe could help to identify problem.
