DLO 7.5 Client is backing up a Network Drive

Created: 09 May 2013 | 2 comments

I have one client that is getting this error Backup source path: G:\M&S\MEASUREMENTS - is not for a local fixed drive.  Which is odd by itself since it shouldn't even be trying to backup that drive.  I have the client restricted so that user cannot alter thier backup selections and from what I can tell you couldn't choose a network drive even if given the rights to modify backup selections.  What makes it worse is that if I look at his backup on the storage location, it did back that folder up, even though the error indicates that it failed.  I obviously do not want it backing up a network location as that data is already backed up, any idea what would cause such behavior?

Any hard links, junction points, symbolic links set up on the client ?

As it is one client, have you tried re-pushing the DLO agent ?

No Hard links that I can find.  The Agent was just upgraded from 7.0 to 7.5 and it was doing this on both clients.
