Mount path conflict: Can’t mount path inside real directory

← All Topics

Backup reports the following error:

Invalid path 'C:\example\path\files': 
Mount path conflict: Can't mount path 'C:\example\path\files' 
inside real directory 'C:\example\'!

This issue is caused because both “C:\example\ ” and  “C:\example\path\files ” are included for backup. Because the former (C:\example\) is included, there’s no need to specially include the latter (C:\example\path\files).

A new version of eazyBackup will have a filter to automatically skip this issue.

For now, you can work around this issue in eazyBackup by editing your protected item -> “items” tab, remove the included location “C:\example\”.

Substitute C:\example\ for your own path.
