Anyone having issues in 188.8.131.52 with their CopyTo files?
I have a large DB that gets a Full weekly and Diff daily. I used to backup directly to my network share but started having issues with "another process might be locking this file" messages. So I changed to backup locally with the CopyTo option. But it seems that sometimes my file is not in the CopyTo folder. No errors or warnings and the file is in the local folder.
I have about 20 other servers running SQL Backup 184.108.40.206 and all use CopyTo and all work correctly. This one is the only place I use INIT. All other servers use EraseFiles=23h and EraseFiles_Remote=30.
I only keep seven days of backups online for this DB, and overwrite the daily Full/Diff file. Am I doing something wrong with my new backup command?
Here's the log file with the command in it. This is the Sunday Full backup. This .sqb was in the local backup folder, but not on the share when I looked this morning. Four of seven days of .sqb files were in the local folder and not on the share when I looked this morning. No warning or error emails.
