Good day.
I'm running Windows 2000 Server SP4 and BackupAssist latest version (3.4.2). My backup device is a Rev35GB (external, USB2.0).

My backup strategy is backup up files on the local hard drive and have them copied to the Rev disk afterwards. The backup strategy also implies deleting backup files older than 30days from the local hard disk and from the Rev disk as well.

Problem is that from time to time, I get a backup "encountered errors" e-mail report. Looking into the detailed report I find these two errors:
A) Error occurred whilst deleting file: F:\2005-12-15.bkf.gzip (Permission denied)
--> it was trying to delete the old backup file from the Rev Disk
B) Copying backup file
An error occurred whilst copying the backup file: Permission denied (70)
--> it was trying to copy the newly made backup file from local hard drive to the Rev Disk

What is strange is that I do not get this error each and every time, but only at times. I also did get this error with prvious version of BackupAssist I had installed (3.3.1).

Hi I'm having the same issue with the files copying to an external drive on another shared server. I can create files and move files manually through explorer however and files bigger than 4 gb give this permission error. so the differential backups work but the full backups fail. the HDD is NTFS and has othe files that are well over 60 gb with no problem. HELP!
