Differential backup of multiple directories can be specified but does not work (Version 2.0.7)

This entry is actually directed to the developer.

I was able to select two directories for a differential backup as follows:

BackupLocation=@drive@\\testjob2
Locations=|C:\\Documents and Settings\\HP_Owner\\My Documents\\CherFore\\Resume|C:\\Documents and Settings\\HP_Owner\\My Documents\\CherFore\\Scripts

The first run created a base file with the Resume directory, and a timestamped file with the Scripts directory.

When I updated files in both directories and ran the differential backup again, only the update in the Resume directory was done successfully. The attempt to pick up the change in the Scripts directory resulted in the following error messages:

Creating file list, this may take some time.

Error:
File already exists
K:\testjob2\2009-03-08-21-46.zip

System error:
Unspecified error

This can be bypassed by setting up jobs for each directory, but I don't think you are supposed to have to do that.

Thanks!
