Backup of 3 volumes ends unsuccessfully after 0 seconds

Hello,

I am a new user of Duplicati and am just taking my first steps with the tool. Please excuse me if my questions have already been dealt with in other posts, but the search in the forum could not help me.

My system environment is a Windows 10 Professional System (1909) with 2 mirrored 1 TB SSDs with two volumes (System and C:) and a 2 TB HDD with one volume F:. Via USB3 an external HDD with 2 TB is connected as volume H:. All three internal drives are Dynamic Disks and the external HDD is a Basic Disk.

So far I have successfully done some tests with smaller backups with Duplicati via the web interface. Now I would like to backup the three internal drives to H:. But the backup job ends after 0 seconds. The three drives contain about 900 GB. Can Duplicati not handle Dynamic Disks?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Welcome to the forum @Fuzzy

I can find no forum or GitHub evidence for or against, and have none myself. You might have to test, however if the tests with smaller backups was on these drives (was it?), then there’s some evidence, and further tests can perhaps expand the backup and other differences to see when it stops working.

What’s odd is that the ExaminedFiles is 0, which I think means it saw nothing where you pointed it…

Where did you point it, do all drives fail if done separately, and how do you point to System partition? Duplicati is usually used with drive letters, and System lacks one, and is maybe not often backed up.

I would also suggest reading the live log at About --> Show log --> Live --> Verbose to get any clues.

Hello ts678,
first of all thank you for your thorough study of my posting and for your hints. However, I did a reinstallation of Duplicati and on this second attempt it worked without any problems. The case has not been solved satisfactorily, but it is no longer a problem for me.
