Error 91 - The directory does not exist

Level 4

I try to archive some files to Tape (Tandberg T40).
The archive at itself seems to work without anyprobles, but the job ends with an error.

Error category    : Other Errors
Error             : 91 - The directory is not empty.

For additional information regarding this error refer to link V-79-0-145


Clicking on the mentionted link does not bring any result as you can see here:

Iam using BE 12.5 REv 2213 on a Windows2003 machine the Server I try to backup is a W2003 too.

Has anyone an idea what that could be?
Every comment is apreciated!

Hi Andreas,

Could be something in your selection list. You could have something selected on a server for example that is no longer there, but that shows up in your include/exclude list.
Double-check that and make sure that the directory that's referenced exists. If not, and it's in your include/exclude, delete it out of there, run the backup again, and then post the results here.

Thanks for the answer Craig ...

its just one folger on one server.
I've already checked this....

Must be something else.


Level 5
Same problem here.

    Same BE version, same OS.

I also tried to recreate the selection list with no success.

Now I just modified the job to use Advanced Open File Option, now it's pre processing, I will tell you later if it worked or not.

See you.

EDIT; Didn't work. Pss..

Level 6

is it possible that someone messed with rights somewhere?  So that BackupExec can see and list a directory, but not actuall access it?

I know that with no indication of where the problem is, this could take a LOOOOOONG time to check out, but is about the only additional suggestion I can think of
