Issues with 2.2.1

Hello Steve, a few issues I've encountered:

  1. In Sync mode, the progress window shows two errors for each file:
    • Failed to open for writing (error 5: access denied)
    • Failed to modify file times (error 5: access denied)

    This happened with every file, both on a remote to local sync, and remote to remote; and no matter if the files had to be updated or not. (Obviously I do have access to those paths.)

    To add weirdness, despite the erros Toucan did copy all files except one, and could change file times to most of them, although a couple directories did not have their timestamps changed.

  2. Regarding that one file it didn't copy, I have to mention Preview did detect it as a candidate to be updated, but progress window showed a "failed to copy" error. The file itself wasn't anything special, an mdb like 7 others which were sync'ed successfully.

  3. Backing up (7z format), the progress window freaks out when file names have accents; output lines are chopped, characters are missing and the whole log becomes an unreadable mess. It might be 7-zip's fault though, I don't know, because when sync'ing the file names are displayed correctly.

  4. Running a script composed of a sync job and a backup job, the progress bar reached its end quite a while before the script actually finished.

  5. Having selected the "remember entered information" checkbox, when I open Toucan, in the Backup tab, it does remember compression format (7z) and level slider (ultra), but caption reads "default".

  6. Lastly, I don't know what settings are being used with 7z on ultra compression, but perhaps there's something wrong with them, because manually compressing my test directory with 7z (ultra mode, but not tweaking any other setting) I obtain a 3 Mb file, while compressing that very same directory via Toucan yields a 30 Mb file.

Let me thank you again for all of your time, I hope you can fix all this stuff easily. Smile

Follow-up: regarding issue

Follow-up:

regarding issue #1, it only happens if files have the read-only attribute set.

Wondering

If this was the issue I had with 2.2.0 Final https://portableapps.com/node/21457
Where is the change log for 2.2.1? I could not find it.

Sorry

for taking so long to reply, hopefully this will help.

  1. Noted, I think I know what caused this and will get it fixed
  2. I think this is probably related to 1, hopefully anyway
  3. Last time I looked I thought it was 7-Zips fault, I shall look again though
  4. Can this be easily reproduced?
  5. Ok, I shall get that fixed
  6. I think this is because Toucan doesn't enable Solid Mode, if you turn that off in 7-Zip do you get a similar sized file? It is disabled in Toucan because you cannot update a file that has been created in solid mode
  7. Thanks for your feedback!

Hi again

4. It is reproducible. In fact I've found out it is also 7-zip's fault. Doing a backup job (including many files with accents) which causes the output window to be messed, the progress bar finishes long before the actual process. ¿Could it be all the wrong line breaks make it count as another processed file?.

6. You're right, disabling solid mode yields a similar sized file. However, ¿would you consider adding some way to specifically enable or configure compression options for those of us who only want a complete backup?.

Yes

I will add solid mode as an option for 3.0, I will take another look at trying to sort out the output with accented characters, it is very annoying.
