After updating Back In Time for version 1.0 snapshots fails: https://bugs.launchpad.net/backintime/+bug/665444
Older versions of Back In Time (before 1.0) don’t check for errors. So everithing it looks ok event if it is not. For a backup tool this is dangerous !
Starting from 1.0 there is an error check and a log view. If snapshot fails (usually because of a special file with different user/group/rights like ~/.gvfs) use the log view to get more informations. If you detect this kind of file you have 3 options:
- if you really need to backup this files you should change rights or backup them as root
- if you don’t care about them exclude them
- if you don’t care about and you don’t want/can exclude them you can check “Continue on errors” option in setting dialog.
