my setup is as follows:
Mac -> backups wirelessly to first MyBookLive -> second MyBookLive makes safepoint of first MyBookLive.
The second backup (the safepoint) often fails:
action_state = FAILED
state = INVALID
While googling for a solution, I stumbled across many people in forums that have the exact same problem. Seemingly, this happens if either in the file name or in the file itself are characters that are causing problems for MyBookLive.
If I move the files that causes the error message into another hierarchy that is not in the automatic backup scheme, the second backup works just fine.
However, that’s highly annoying. Sometimes, I have a couple of files and have to move 10 or 15 files out of the backup hierarchy (which means, I have to backup them manually). Also, I can manually copy those files onto MyBookLive, it’s the automatic safepoint that fails. According to the forum entries I found on that, this problem is going on for more than a year now.
If I turn off the safepoint functionality and use instead a rsync script run by a cronjob, it can update all the data without fail. However, I want the backup to run at night, when my computer is turned off - so I’d prefer to use the safepoint functionality.
Does anyone work on that? Is there an estimated date when this will be fixed?
