More Detailed Progress Display?

Submitted by ontheritz on January 6, 2013 - 6:51am

Hey guys,

I love love love Toucan so far, and I have my first question!

Does anybody know how to see detailed progress information? So far I just see the "Progress" window with all the "Compressing [some file]", or telling me its making a list of files, or whatever, and a green bar up top.

I would like to be able to see details like:
- Time spent so far
- Estimated time remaining
- Total files to examine
- Total files examined
- Total files remaining to examine
- Total files backed up
- Total files not backed up
- % Complete

Sync running VERY slow

Submitted by mbo on December 20, 2012 - 1:05am


I'm trying to run a ~80GB sync using Toucan 3.0.4 on Windows 7 (32bit) mirroring from my main drive (NTFS) to a FAT32 external drive, and it's incredibly slow.

I started the job last night around 10pm and now (7:30am next morning) progress bar indicates a job completion rate of some 5-10%. At this moment, Toucan is copying cache files from my Mozilla profiles folder, each weighing in at some 30kB, at a speed of 1 of these per every 10 seconds!

Building Toucan from scratch

Submitted by TheRG on November 18, 2012 - 6:31am


I'd like to build Toucan on a Windows XP machine. I tried almost all suggestions posted in topic but without success.

The offending source statement was:
#include <boost/threadpool.hpp>

because the threadpool library is not included in the latest Boost release. Actually, this library seems abandoned: the latest version (0.2.5) available on SourceForge is already four years old.

2 files / 1 encrypted & 1 not encrypted

Submitted by on October 31, 2012 - 4:35pm


I managed to mess up with my password and am in trouble.
I encrypted several files which I have no chance of recovering without it.
However, there is one file that is encrypted (lost password)
and I have the very same file decrypted as well, since it is a picture I got from Internet.
Since the content is known, (if I would have my password, I would get the as a result the decrypted version of the file) is there anychance to find out the password again ?

Pls help.

Progress to display destination directory as well as source directory??

Submitted by murraykf on October 3, 2012 - 7:26am

Toucan is a great backup program. I backup my data to multiple external locations. I was wondering though, when Toucan displays the Progress screen when running my script and says "Copied c:\\, can it also add an extension to the line saying "to U:\\" , so I know which backup is occurring at that time??
I hope this little extra can be added.

Duplicate filename when extension is in different case

Submitted by Memochipan on September 21, 2012 - 1:08pm


I got this error message:

11:24:15 Error:
Duplicate filename:

How can I avoid this since I'm backuping a Linux based system and is possible I have many of these cases.

Can Toucan rename automatically when it find duplicates?

Thanks for the help.
