V-79-57344-65033 - Directory not found. Cannot backup directory \Folder\Subfolder1 and its subdirectories.
This error occurs when a subdirectory/s inside a directory being backed up is renamed, deleted or no longer exists.
If Subfolder1 and Subfolder2 are selected in the backup selection list under "View by Resource", then "View selection details" looks like this:

Under "View by Resource", select only the main "Folder" in the selection list. As a result, under "View Selection Details"
Exclude the directories that no longer exist. To do this, deselect the unwanted folders from under "View by Resource" , It looks like:
C:\Folder\Subfolder3\*.* /SUBDIR /EXCLUDE
C:\Folder\Subfolder4\*.* /SUBDIR /EXCLUDE
The result will be the same as the first option but in this case the backup would not fail when a folder is renamed, deleted or moved.
