DoSnapShotSet didnt finish

I know I've seen this on the forum before but not sure where.

I am getting VssAsync is taking more than 60s and DoSnapShotSet did not finish

Windows 7

What should I do about this?

The 2.1.1 beta version introduced a per-job registry setting ShadowCopyTimeout that can be used to set the timeout for the VSS operation (in number of seconds).

Here are the links to the 2.1.1 beta version:

Does this just install over a previous version or do i need to uninstall first?

A new install can overwrite the existing one. But please make sure you exit the current running GUI or stop the service.

To set ShadowCopyTimeout once I install 2.1.1 -- where do I go? I opened regedit and serached for it but didnt see it yet... should the key be already in the registry? Thanks!

The user guide has a section on how to create various registry values for different purposes. ShadowCopyTimeout should be set up the same way.

I am SO SORRY- but I read the user guide and I hate windows... and I dont understand exactly how to do the registry entry.

Do I just to Edit | New | String Value

If so- where do I put the HCLM\ stuff? The Value Name is not editable...

sorry to be a pain.

In RegEdit, first find HKLM\Software\Duplicacy or HKCU\Software\Duplicacy (whichever exists), then right click it, select New, and then String Value. The name of the value should be ShadowCopyTimeout while the data should be a number like 600 or 1200 which means the number of seconds Duplicacy will wait for the Shadow Copy operation to finish.

well neither one of those are present in the reg editor at the moment. Sigh... windows is such pain. Anyhow... thanks.

HKCU actually means HKEY_CURRENT_USER The Duplicacy registry should appear under this root if you ran the Duplicacy installer with normal privileges. Otherwise it is under HKLM which is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

Oh, I didnt know that. thanks.
