Backup Fails: "Failed to parse 'Invoke' command..."

Hi,

I've just downloaded and installed Veeam Endpoint Backup. I've set up a file level backup to backup files to a removable 3TB drive connected via USB. 15 minutes into the backup, it aborts with an error. The report says:
Code: Select all
Backed up items: n/a
Backup duration: 0:14.48
Restore point size: n/a
Total backup size: 0 B
Average backup duration: 0:00:00
Free disk space: 1.54 TB

I've tried backing up twice - once with anti-virus on, once with it off in case it made any difference. But the backup failed in the same place both times.

I'm using the latest version of Veeam Backup (V1.5.0.306).

Any help please? The product looks good and I'm looking to replace the somewhat buggy Acronis True Image 2016 software I've used till now. I've heard good things about Veeam.

BTW, I tried to raise a support ticket from the app but when I try it says my email address is not registered (it is, and I have responded to the activation email twice since, but still no joy.)

Thanks in advance.

Hi Gostev,

Many thanks for your reply. My email address is now recognized (guess it can take a little time occasionally). I've opened support case #01994030 with the issue. Thanks again!
