When I try to use Toucan for backup, I get a warning that is called wxWidgets Debug Alert. It asks me if I want to stop the program. No backup is performed. What is being wrong? I have made a screen print and saved it but can't find a way to add it here. Is there any?

Running Scripts with Windows Path

Submitted by paulojfonseca on August 4, 2015 - 5:52am

Hi all,

I am trying to create a very simple script to copy 1 file between 2 locations.
I am using Windows 7 32 bits.

I am using the following code:
copy("E:\\abc.txt", "E:\\a\\")
copy([[E:\abc.txt]], [[E:\a\]])

both e:\abc.txt file and e:\a folder exit but i keep receiving this message:

10:49:33 Failed to copy E:\abc.txt
10:49:33 Toucan 3.1
Date: 2015-08-04
Computer Name: ESP-AED-017
Operating System: Windows 7 (build 7601, Service Pack 1)

Rule: only current files to sync / copy - please ?Help?

I'm start with toucan 3.1
And I have a problem with Toucan, I find no matching examples.
I would like from different directories / drives the files with a specific folder (for example: C:/news) sync or copy, that's simple and I manage itself.

But now the problem in the rules:

I just want to transfer files and synchronize that have been changed in the last 5 days!
I had thought that it works with a rule:
"include files / Date /> @date@ -5"
or "exclude files /Date/ <@date@ -5"

Delete file in Dest. that is in Source

Submitted by nugroho2 on May 31, 2015 - 2:52pm

Please help a beginner...

I want to delete file in Destination that is also in Source. How could I do that? I have tried and sought various sources and can not find it.

Files in Source : A, B, C , D
Files in Destination: A, F, G

I want to delete the file A in destination. Is that possible using Toucan? Or I should use other software?

Thanks a lot.

Hello everyone,

Looks like John has got some time to get in touch with me and we've moved the sources from my SourceForge account to PortableApps' new GitHub one. So please if you have any specific bugs to report or feature requests to subit - do that at GitHub.

The specific location is:

Restore Issue: "The backup archive must be specified"

Submitted by clix on April 26, 2015 - 3:24pm

Hi there,
I lost my laptop and was glad that I had a pretty recent Toucan backup - until I wanted to restore the ZIP file: after selecting the archive zip file and the destination, I only get the error message "The backup archive must be specified". Any idea what I do wrong?
Thanks a lot,

Regex examples

Submitted by az2000 on June 26, 2014 - 12:48am

I am using the latest version of Toucan. Works great, except I can't get the file include to work. I've searched for examples of regexes, but most questions seem to almost be *evaded*. ("I didn't understand your question..." "simple matching should work for that.").

Are there any examples of *working* regexes?

All I want to do is include files with an extension ".mp3" I've tried regexes, and it copies all files. I've tried simple .mp3 and it includes all files.

If this is supposed to work, examples would be nice.

Toucan 3.1.3 released

Submitted by alt on January 19, 2014 - 8:50am

You can find changelog details and download link in the Beta forum thread

Steve and John seem to be swamped with other things, so I still don't have permissions to put it into the official repo, but you can just get the .paf file directly and install it by going to Apps->Install New App in the PA main menu.

Feel free to try it out and comment here, or on the bug tracker

Please share your tips to increase backup speed to flash drive

Submitted by pdun459 on December 5, 2013 - 5:07pm

Hey all. I've been using Toucan for awhile now and was happy to stumble upon this forum as I'm having an issue I was hoping to get some feedback on.

Backing up a 3 GB folder with video clips to a USB flash drive takes forever. It starts by making a file list, then copies a few files and then stops again and eventually starts copying again. It repeats this process over and over and takes about 30 minutes to finish. I was wondering if this sounds like a normal amount of time for a folder of this size using 7zip and no compression? If not, can anyone recommend some ways to speed it up?
