First backup of Windows 10

Post by jlittle » Mon Dec 21, 2015 10:12 pm

I just did my first backup of Windows 10 Home version, 64 bit. I used the "canned" backup job for the whole C: partition, using version 3.3.0.441. Backed up to an external HD.
I was shocked to find 130 files that couldn't be backed up. I'm pretty sure they all say Opened Exclusive File Support Failed.
Some of them were no surprise (like edb.log files) but a lot of them, I don't even know what they are.
The job setting that says, "Backup open exclusive (locked)" is checked.
Is this typical for a first backup of Win 10?
Thanks
John

Hi John

The version of AISBackup you are using was written before Windows 10 support was added, please download the latest version from http://aiscl.co.uk/downloadaisbackup.php

Oh, I didn't even think of that!
Okay, thanks.

Tried it again, and it was perfect.
Thanks a lot.
