"Unable to read data from the transport connection: The connection was closed."

I am using version on Windows 10 64bit

Following advice from a previous thread (How to speed up file recovery?) I decided to split up my backup into 4 separate folders. The weird thing is that two of those folders consistently fail with the above stated error. All 4 folders are located on the same hard-drive and all are backed up to my Dropbox account. They’re all roughly the same size (20-40gb) and the ones that fail tend to get uploaded at a pretty slow rate. They make progress but then suddenly fail. I try again and it’s making progress very slowly.

  1. How can I find out more about this error message?
  2. How can I force it to just retry whenever there’s a connection error?

Both jobs are failing with the same error message?

Are you able to find the command logged BEFORE the error message? I’d like to try to pin down what step of the backup process is running into the issue…

You can use --retry-delay=5s and --number-of-retries=100.
