    Hi,
    Evey time I try to make a backup I got this:

    ERROR: Can not add " " to zip archive!

    So, It doesn't seem to be working since last update... it just happens with file backup, database backup seems to be ok.

    Thanks!

    The problem ist i must find out how many files can open at the same time an the most hoster. More files open results in better preformance. I have reduced the number to next update.

    Same happens to me, but I also have more problems, so it looks like this:

    ERROR: Can not add " " to zip archive!
    ERROR: ZipArchive returns status: (ER_DELETED) Entry has been deleted
    ERROR:

    Probably same problem. This is on HostGator if that helps:

    We are still getting this with BackWPup 3.06.

    The files it fails on seem random - different ones each time.

    Hi everyone,

    the issue here doesn't seem to be the errors, but the preceding warning. Whenever you see a warning like WARNING: Job restart due to inactivity for more than 5 minutes., it has to do with a timeout during archive creation. The timeout is most likely to be caused by limitations on script execution set by the hosting company. Those can largely vary from host to host, so it is almost impossible to define a preset in the plugin that works for everyone.

    Therefore since BackWPup 3.0.6 there's an option labeled Restart on archive creation in BackWPup->Settings->Jobs. Here you can manually set a number of x Megabytes BackWPup will add to an archive and then pause before adding another x MBs to the same archive. That way we try to avoid for the backup process to be canceled server-side because of a timeout for script execution.

    What you can do is:

    • Test out (trial/error) the number of MB that works for your server.
    • If that doesn't work for you, split up a backup job into smaller backups (i.e. an extra job for /uploads).

    Splitting up large backup jobs into smaller ones might be a good idea anyway if your site contains a lot of uploaded files.

    I'm using backup option to Dropbox, and after that 3 errors I still find my backup in my Dropbox folder. So is that only like warning and everything is fine or I need to do something about it?

    Thanks

    1) This did not happen before 3.0 release
    2) It is happening on very small backups 15mb-50mb
    3) Only happens with zip, not TarGz
    4) we have made no other changes, just upgraded your plugin

    I tryed BU today, and it works with 2 warnings.

    WARNING: No tables to dump.
    WARNING: Job restart due to inactivity for more than 5 minutes.

    Is that allright, or I need to concern about something?
