Backup fails without error when file accessed failed.


When running without admin rights it seem to work (shows "Backup completed"), but the wlwbackup file is not written. Logfile shows:
22.03.2009 11:42:53: System.ArgumentException: Access to the path is denied.

Can you check, if you have another drive (say d:) that you can use, try saving the backup to there. I think the program might only need to be run as administrator if you're saving to the C: drive. Sadly windows seems to think anyone writing anything to the C: drive must have administrator privileges.

I experience exactly the same behavior. Backup to F: doesn't change anything. Only Admin privileges help. I even tried to write into the same directory where the log file is written, which obviously is accessible, since otherwise the log file couldn't be written. But even there I get the same error, described above.
