Warning 140 CopyTo File already exist

Postby kwinter@hagerty.com » Mon Dec 03, 2012 4:36 pm

Running RedGate 7. We are backing up locally then copying the backup to off box folder and we get (not always) the following message:

12/3/2012 3:00:02 AM: Warning 140: COPYTO error: Destination file already exists. Will not overwrite: \\\\Company.com\\public\\SQLBackups\\vm-prod06\\RedGate\\FULL_(local)_model_20121203_030000.sqb

This file really is there and everything is okay, but our senior dba doesn't want to put in the " /fileoption=4 " because that would mean that we will have to change a lot of code.

Basically why is this happening and how to prevent it (maybe there is a patch to red gate) Running Red Gate 7

Any help is appreciated,

Thank you, :?

Could you please post the contents of a SQL Backup log for a backup that encountered this warning? The default folder where the logs are stored is C:\\Documents and Settings\\All Users\\Application Data\\Red Gate\\SQL Backup\\Log\\<instance name> on Windows 2003 and older, and C:\\ProgramData\\Red Gate\\SQL Backup\\Log\\<instance name> on Windows Vista and newer.

Thanks.

Hi Peter,

Just a note: Today, I ran the job and it didn't return a warning, I tried using the parameter "FILEOPTIONS = 4" it too didn't return a warning.

very weird,

Thanks again,

Could you please run the following on the SQL Server instance that you are taking the backups on

Code: Select all
SELECT * FROM msdb..backupset WHERE database_name = 'model'
  AND backup_start_date >= '2012-12-03 03:00' AND backup_finish_date <= '2012-12-03 03:05'

and post the results. Thanks.

Strange, it should at least have a record of the backup made of the 'model' database made on that date. Is your instance set up to delete backup history details older than 2 days?

The results show that only one backup was performed by SQL Backup each day, though there seemed to be another native backup performed by SQL Server after each SQL Backup backup.

At this point, I don't know how the backup file got copied to the network share, before SQL Backup attempted to copy it over. We used to have a tool named CopyTool, that was a standalone application to copy backup files outside of SQL Backup. Do you happen to be using this tool, or another third-party app (Robocopy, Syncback etc), to copy the backup files?
