If the backup job is cancelled at the time of Network Copy for the PST file, PST size is reduced to "0 KB" in NUDF. This doesn't allow user to get a successfull restore of the PST file. This is seen if the revision of the PST on the NUDF is kept as "1"


Either the user shut down the DLO Client machine or network got disconnected



Keep more than one revision of PST on the NUDF
