Backups Stopped Working

Whenever I try to backup my project (auto or manual) they stall and failing around 50%. No matter where I point the backup folder to, it fails. I was working without any issues until this last week or so. I am running Windows 10 version 1607 on a Surface Pro 3. Not sure why the backups won’t occur, but this is the first time it is failing. Any help would be much appreciated.

I assume some file within the project is locked and cannot be copied for backup. Please, make sure you have enough free space on your temp drive(the drive used for you %TEMP% and %TMP% folders).

You can also try to move the project into another location manually. I would suggest:

  1. Restart you computer.
  2. Copy/Move the project into a new location. Ensure the project is fully copied via checking the folder size of the old project and the new one.
  3. Open the project from the new location and test the backup feature.


I ran a check on drive where the project is stored and backups now work. I guess the check unlocked the locked files? Not sure, but all is good now. Thanks.
