Error with basic backup and restore

Asked by Douglas Stivison

Under Windows XP, I am completely unable to restore from a backup. I can create a backup without any problem, but when I go to restore from the backup nothing happens but this is what the log file reads:

What do I need to change or do to be able to back up and restore successfully?

Thanks for your help.

it's a bug, fixed with this one liner: http://svn.berlios.de/viewvc/griffith/trunk/lib/backup.py?r1=1539&r2=1610

replace your backup.py file with this one: http://svn.berlios.de/viewvc/griffith/trunk/lib/backup.py or wait for new release

Can you help with this problem?
