Can files from SQL-Backup 6 be used?

Postby TSchwab » Wed Aug 04, 2010 9:33 am

Hi,

I was wondering if I can use the backup-files created with Redgate SQL-Backup? :?:

Everytime I try it I get at Step 2 the following message:
Error occurred when scanning backup files
Data is Null. This method or property cannot be called on Null values.
:(

(By the way, the error message is shown on the very bottom of the window and I can not read it, because most of the text is out of the window. I have to click on it to read it. I could provide you with a screenshot if needed!)

Any suggestions?

Thanks.
Regards,

Thorsten

Hi Thorsten,

Thanks for your post. Is there any chance you can send that screenshot to support(at)red-gate.com so we can have a look at it?

Also, can you confirm which version of SQL Backup was this file taken using and also is it encrypted or not?

Many thanks!

Hi Peter,

thanks für your answer.
I will send you a screenshot in a few minutes.

I'm using SQL Backup 6.4.0.56 on a SQL-Server 2005.
The file was not encrypted and I used CompressionLevel 3.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

Hi Thorsten,

Sorry for the delay on this one. This is still being looked into here however has so far been unreproducible. We do however have a new vrsion of HyperBac planned for release next week which I was going to ask you to try. There has been some work done on the timeout issue area and I am hoping that this version will work better for you.

I will be in touch directly when it is available.
