Tucan Backup problem

When using the Tucan software to back up files I found out if you were to switch the file type to 7-Zip, it ends up saving the file with the ending .zip (Zip File; Compressed File) and when I go to open it up, Widows says that it cant open it up because it is a 7-Zip file with the .zip file ending. I had the setting as follows:

Are there any bug fixes to this?

not backup software. Use

not backup software. Use TOucan for that. If you're having a problem, post it in the Toucan forum.

Too many bridges you can burn
Too many tables you can't turn
Don't wanna live my life in the real world

File-system trasher

Cross-platform and 'all OS supported' I imagine sounds tempting to developers, but it seems that many simply claim cross-platform and think that programming language can take care of all OS pairings, without much testing or more knowledge.

I tested this program in my Windows 7 PC trying to download from filesonic and it trashed my file system with ghost folders, just because it's developer does not understand what he claims - Windows support

It might be of some use to others if I post how I handled those garbage folders:

- map parent folder on network and grant all access rights
- delete folders from remote you granted rights

Never on my PC again Tucan

To be fair to the Developer

On the Tucan Website there is a specific list of the filesharing services which are supported by this software and no support is claimed for the filesonic service, so I guess the answer is: "You shouldn't have tried to use it".

Sorry, but I don't have any direct experience of this software so can't comment on its reliability (or otherwise) in managing contact with the services which are supported.
