Submitted by luo jie on March 24, 2017 - 5:07pm

I have used Toucan to backup with different tasks different and separate directories. everything was ok.
I saved these tasks. I don't know where they are saved. or if they are (portable release)
I don't know weither this interactive manner saved jobs, or scripts, or...
I want to do these saved tasks automatically
do I have to create a batch file? or Toucan can do it (how?
is it something like
toucan /j"name of task 1" (directory 1)
toucan /j"name of task 2" (directory 2)

As a company can we download, install and use "Toucan", and third party software that may be included, without any cost?

Can you give me the link where i can make the download?

Encryption job always failing

Submitted by roby777 on October 6, 2016 - 10:10am

Hi all,

I just discovered this app and there is something I cannot get to work.
I create a job to sync folder A over folder B; then I have created a secure job to encrypt folder A and a second job to encrypt folder B.
Finally, I have created a script via GUI to perform those three job:
--> sync A over B
--> encrypt A
--> encrypt B
but and the script finish without encrypting files inside folder A and B and the log says that it is "impossible to decrypt" files

Am I making some mistake? It is a bug?

Backup failing on home PC with error that file has been externally altered

Submitted by PetersT on October 5, 2016 - 6:33am

I'm currently unable to backup my USB drive to my home PC. Since I've been having issues where the backup seems to just hang, I had tried selecting a subset of the files on my USB, i.e. just the PortableApps folder (granted, it's fairly big considering all of the email stored in Thunderbird). According to the log, the job ran for 6:03 minutes. The last lines that appear in the log, prior to the time elapsed, are:
System error:
The volume for a file has been externally altered so that the opened file is no longer valid.
The conditions are:

No run button on Backup tab in Toucan 3.1

Submitted by PetersT on September 20, 2016 - 9:57am

I decided to give Toucan a try after the PortableApps platform backup failed numerous times and no resolution to that issue has been forthcoming. I set up a backup job in Toucan, on the Backup tab, then proceeded to give it a whirl. Then, I discovered that there appeared to be no way to run the job from the interface; i.e. there was no "Run" button. I checked the online documentation, which clearly shows a button labeled "Run" on the application's Backup tab, but no such button appears on the version I just installed (3.1).

delete tmp file

Submitted by Gwray on June 9, 2016 - 2:55pm

I tried the software to backup a large thunderbird file. It kept saying not enough room and timed out.
I gave up and jut want to delete the files it tried to make. They are *.zip.tmp files ? I have tried unlocker and lockhunter - just locks up?
