I ran my backup and everything worked fine, the log that it produced said there was 221 errors reported, and when i look through the log there are only 46 errors? Any ideas.

Only 50 first errors are listed in log file, then additional text "Too many errors, all not logged!" is added to log file. Is there any special need to see all errors in log file? I can change this in a future version if there is valid request for that.

It would be nice to view all the errors that occur, in case it didn't back up a file i really need it to back up then i can do it manually.

If there were errors during backup, it would be smart to solve problems that caused the errors, so you can re-run the backup so you won't miss files. For example, if the log file lists 1596 errors, it has no sense to manually copy all these files.

The reason why all errors are not listed is to prevent log file from cluttering too easily. If there were no limit and you accidentally started backup when network drive used as copy target was not mapped, you will see many thousands of error messages in the log file, one message per source file. But all they were caused by a single problem - that is drive was not mapped. Additional messages have no meaning on that case.

makes sense about the network drive mapping. i think the errors logged should be increased to 500 or so, i just want to be able to see a list of the files that didn't copy up to a maximum to 500. right now it is setup to log the error files up to 50 right?
