Occurs when KennelSuite has
finished the Preparation and Compression phases and is about
to write the backup to disk.
Backing up KennelSuite with
Beginning with Windows Vista,
Microsoft doesn’t allow certain types of user data to be
written to the root folder of a removable drive (USB flash
drive, external USB hard drive). You must create a folder,
which will belong to you, as opposed to the root folder,
which belongs to Windows..
Name the folder whatever you want,
such as “KennelSuiteBackup”. Make a note of the location
of your new folder. It will be something like
“F:\KennelSuiteBackup”. You can’t use something like “F:\”
because that’s the root folder of drive F:.
In KennelSuite click Tools
> Options > Files & Backup. Set your
Backup Location to the drive & folder you
created, such as “F:\KennelSuiteBackup”.From the main
KennelSuite window, click File > Backup.
That should do it. Be aware that
Windows assigns the drive letters to removable/external
drives. If you use several USB flash or external hard
drives, the letter that Windows assigns may change
depending on the order in which the drives are connected
to the computer.
In other words, what is drive F:
today may be drive G: tomorrow. KennelSuite knows only one
backup location so if you randomly insert/remove flash
drives during the day, you may need to update
Tools > Options > Files & Backup > Backup Location
to account for the changing drive letters.
If you use different flash drives
on different days for your backups (recommended), the
backup will fail if any of the drives doesn’t have a
KennelSuiteBackup folder. It will fail if your backup
location is on drive F: but Windows has assigned the
letter G:. This isn’t a KennelSuite issue. It’s about how
Windows works on Vista/7/8/10. It wasn’t a problem on XP
and earlier versions of Windows.
