Toucan backup 3.x hangs

Hi,

I am running Toucan 3.0.3 on WinXP, SP3. I have administrator rights on the box.

This is something that used to work fine under Toucan 2.x, but hangs "most of the times" now.

I backup the same files to 2 different locations, both on USB drives.

backup type: 7z, complete
source data:
- folder on the C: drive
- folder on the F: drive (USB drive)
destination 1:
- another folder on the F: drive (USB drive)
destination 2:
- folder on the H: drive (USB drive)

The first set of files (the stuff from the C: drive) are always backed up correctly, but Toucan usually hangs building the list of files from the second location.
If I kill Toucan, the incomplete backup is not corrupted, and I can extract the files from the archive without problems.

Even if the first backup (to drive F:) works, the second backup is almost bound to fail.

I initially thought the issue is the beta version of 7za.exe that comes with Toucan 3.x, and I kept replacing it with the latest one. Sometimes, not always, the first try after I update the 7za.exe is successful, but not always. I just updated to the latest, non-beta, release of 7z, and Toucan hanged on the first try.

Thanks

for the report on this, I can honestly say I haven't seen anything like this happen before. Do you have this in four separate jobs?

Thanks

for your bug report, can you tell me what version you are using? The newest pre-release may well fix this issue.
