Mac - Failed to process metadata - storing empty metata

Mac running Catalina 10.15.4

I have been successfully backing up a File to Box Drive, Google Drive and MS One Drive.

I attempted to change the jobs to backup a Folder that has about 4 files. On each job I get a bunch of warnings: “Failed to process metadata - storing empty metata”.

Can anyone tell me how to get rid of these warnings?


I should have added that the folder being backed up are on a network shared drive.


I was able to get the folder backed up by using filters to exclude all system and hidden files. It was able to run without errors or warnings.

Glad you were able to solve your issue. Thanks for following up!
