AST backup error

I'm trying to backup an AST ledger file and receive the below errors

 

"Unable to open the file ***.ast"

 

"Directory size does not match file size for ***.ast"

 

"Unable to locate the file ***.AST"

 

"Unable to locate the file ***.AST, backup operation abandoned."

 

This is on a file I have previously backed up without problems. Has anybody encountered or have suggestions for a fix to this?

 

Big thanks

Re: AST backup error

Hi @BRichards,

 

I know this may sound strange, but can you please try selecting the Backup Location: drive first, then click browse. If I remember correctly the backup window defauls to A: drive, which usually doesn't exist on most computers these days.

 

Once you select it once, the system should remember the location as default from now on.
