How to Resolve "Error backing up selected object" Error

  • Last updated on

Through the Barracuda Backup web interface you can select specific folders for back up within a parent directory. However, if a folder that has been selected for backup is moved or removed from the parent directory, the Barracuda Backup appliance generates an error because the item selected for back up is no longer present:



To resolve this error, log in to the web interface and deselect the folder which has been removed from the directory for the source. To do so,

  1. Log in to Barracuda Backup, and go to the BACKUP > Sources page.
  2. Click Edit to the right of the source to edit share settings.
  3. Expand the item selection. The folder displays with a warning triangle:
  4. Uncheck the removed folder, and click Save to save your settings.

Deselecting folders and/or files purges the associated data from the Barracuda Backup appliance.
