FEBE does nothing at all

Postby Spanjbob » Sun May 06, 2018 5:47 pm

Since several days ago when I try to perform backup with FEBE, it does nothing at all, as if I didn't click the button. Similarly, when I get the notification to run FEBE again as two weeks have passed, I click OK and nothing happens. Normally it takes a few minutes and I need to set it to ignore unresponsive scripts. I checked the backup folder on my external drive and nothing gets put there when this happens.

I've got FF ESR 52.7.4 and FEBE 8.9.3.1.

Are you getting any FEBE related errors in the error console (Tools > Web Developer > Browser Console)?

Also try running "Clear FEBE preferences", "Verify extension directory" and "Check AddonManager functionality" in FEBE Options > Advanced. (You will need to re-enter your FEBE backup destination directory and other backup options after clearing.)

If you are still experiencing problems, try this: Open and clear the Error console. Leave it open and perform a backup. Examine the error console for any FEBE related error messages (type febe in the "Search:" box). Copy/paste them here.

Thanks, that helped. I was getting some read-only error in the console. Turns out that my hard drive up and decided to become read-only. Forced reinstall of HDD drivers and the problem is gone :-D

The hard drive setting itself to read-only? That's odd, but certainly would affect backing up.

Happy to hear everything is back to normal. :)
