I have just installed 0.10.1 on Win7 32 bits, and set up a profile to backup c: on e:. I get an IOException when I launch the task:

java.io.IOException: Could not list the contents of "file:///C:/ProgramData/Application Data" because it is not a folder.

Indeed, there is no folder (or file) called "Application Data" in "ProgramData".

This bug simply prevents from using the software (blocking).

    you can add a filter to your profile to ignore that "ProgramData".

    you will need a few more such filters to successfully backup C: to E:, and i hope you understand that FullSync is not suitable to do full system backups.

    HTH

    I certainly don't want to ignore "ProgramData", I want to backup it. Does it mean that this will not be considered a bug?

    No, I am not aware that FullSync is not suitable for full system backups, because I haven't found any advertisement of such a limitation in the documentation.

    ah sorry i meant to ignore the "non existing" "Application Data".
    I do consider this a bug of course, but I'm not sure how i will be able to fix this bug, and if it's worth the effort.

    Yeah i should probably add that to the documentation.

    OK, thanks for the information.
