My friend got a new computer with Windows Vista and I helped him setup his registered Backup Magic vs. 1.67 which is set to mirror. He has a USB hard drive for backup. Backup Magic will not backup his Document files even though the program is running as administrator. Why? How can we fix that?

Ah, I was reading the error back to front!

F is a genuine drive, I'll double check and report back.

As you see the first line in log is that it is not possible to create destination folder and all other file copy errors that follow are caused by the first as the destination path is not valid. Seems there is problem creating folder on F drive, it is possible there there is no F drive letter at all in that system. You did not include any stystem info for that computer so I don't know if F is valid drive letter and what kind of drive is that.

One of my clients is having the same problem on Vista, the error log is reporting that it can't find the files it is trying to copy, but they're definitely there!

Here's a bit of the error log (I've had to replace the company name with the word COMPANY for security reasons);

It is not much help when you don't tell what exact error messages did you see in log file. If it was "Access denied" then there is still problem with permissions.
