I am currently using Sage 50 US Quantum 2016 on Windows Server 2012. I setup a total of 50 automatic backup configuration files on the server and scheduled them to run in Windows Task Scheduler. It was running fine all the way until early this month (Nov 2021).
The processes stopped all of a sudden on the server and I checked the respective backup log file for each of those ptc files and noticed an error saying “Exception error occurred during backup: the path is not of a legal form”.” I did try to open each of those saved ptc files and click on the Backup button to test the process. It worked perfectly fine under the Automatic Backup console but if I schedule it and link it up to the task scheduler to run them in a preferred time slot, it will return the above error message and fail to carry out the tasks. Even though I modified the backup location to a different one, it would still give me the same error.
I have no idea what kind of error it is and wondering if any one here could kindly give me some tips of how to resolve this issue.
Thanks a lot in advance and really appreciate your replies.
