Problems using File History backup. RRS feed

  • Question

  • When a 'File History' backup is run the following errors are encountered in the log.

    'Directory was not backed up because it is a reparse point'

    An attempt was made to delete the reparse point.  

    i.e.     > fsutil reparsepoint  appdir  query

    but an error was returned     'access error'

    I would be grateful for any help offered.

  • Hi, I would appear I am having a similar problem with File History not wanting to backup certain Directories due to this Reparse error.
    So far all I have found is a suggestion to Add and eplicit backup in Filehistory with the full path of the Directory or Directories affected.

    At the moment it only seems to be my IECache folders that are affected and as I do not use Internet Explorer I am not too worried.

    I would be interested to know if you found a fix?
