Toucan 1.2.1 Pre-release 4

A pre-release of Toucan 1.2.1 is now up, it hopefully fixed all of these bugs:

  1. Non silent in equilise-sync during console mode
  2. Help file, make command line location clear
  3. Equilise problem
  4. Drive pvar
  5. Folder exclusions in backup
  6. Backup in zip mode, solid mode needs to be switched off.
  7. Secure stalls
  8. Restore failure
  9. Restore needs overwrite
  10. No encryption in incremental
  11. Incremental backup with maximum compression
  12. Overwrite backup jobs
  13. Backup folder exclusion still not working

If any of these bugs arn't fixed, or you can find any more please post below. The single new feature with 1.2.1 is that you should be able to run command line jobs directly from the main Toucan.exe in the programs root folder.

You can get it here.

*EDIT* Pre-release two is now up, this makes a few changes, most if which I can't remember (I'll post them up later), but it now forces ccrypt to overwrite existing files, stopping the freezing issue. *EDIT*

*EDIT 2* A whole host of new bugs are fixed in this one, hopefully it'll be the last release. *EDIT 2*

*EDIT 3* Load more fixes, I think after this release, any bugs that remain will become features Smile I've updated the fixed bugs list at the top. *EDIT 3*

Can

I take it that this means there are no issues, also can someone test this on Windows 98, it should now work but I cannot test it.

Sorry,

for not replying sooner, I have exams this week so I'm pretty busy. I'll have a look at this as soon as I can though. Could you post the settings that you used as it could be a combination that is a problem now.

Exclusion of folders does not work!

In the incremental mode, the exclusion of folders does not work :(.

Tried everything! Sad

/EDIT: It works in no mode any more! Neither 7z nor zip. Not Complete, Update or Incremental Sad

OK,

when the backup is running look in the App\toucan directory and there should be a text file in there called temp-exclusions.txt, do the values in this file look correct?

When I started Toucan and

When I started Toucan and run the backup for the first time, there is the right folder in the "temp-exclusions.txt" (tried to backup toucan itself and the excluded folder is 'Other'), but it does NOT exclude that folder.

When I run the backup process a second time, Toucan doesn't care, what I changed in folder exclusion. The remains "/Other" - no change is accepted. Sad

Everything fine :)

Hey Steve,

now your programm runs without any problems :D. I just started recommending it to a lot of fellow students ;).

/EDIT: Ok, there is one last problem with commandline incremental backup. Toucan said "Welcome..." and nothing happens - no hdd action, nothing. But thats no real big problem.

is Preview=1 ignored by command line system?

My job is Type=Sync; Function=Update; Attributes=1; Preview=1; Exclusions=|

Running Toucan 1.2.1, PR4 in a WinXp SP2 command prompt window via PortableApps\Toucan\App\Toucan\Toucan.exe

For testing purposes I don't want any changes made till I know I've set it up right but it seems that Preview=1 is ignored?

Yes,

preview is ignored when using the command lines system, the thinking behind that was that you need to use the GUI to create the job files so you could test it from there, I'll look at getting it supported in 2.0 though.

That makes sense

but I was hoping that preview=1 worked and the log file could be produced so that I could see the result of running Toucan from within an AutoIt script when the command prompt window isn't visible.

Ahh,

I see, in that case I'll try to add it to 2.0.
