Hello Jamie,

Okay great good to know. I suspect the issue is related to the capitalization within the destination file system.

As such, I would also suggest that you make the following change within the configuration file as previously mentioned.

> # Backup Source (no trailing slash is required)
> backupSource=/volumes/Data
> to 
> # Backup Source (no trailing slash is required)
> backupSource=/Volumes/Data

I also suggest that you comment out the following line within your configuration file : 

> abort_if_permisions_on_volume_not_set="NO"

To enable permissions on the destination volume (highly recommended) you may issue the following command from a root shell : 

> /usr/sbin/vsdbutil -a /Volumes/Data

There are other approaches to enabling the permissions on the destination volume. One such approach is mentioned within the "Basic Backup Local Machine" LBackup screen cast : http://www.lbackup.org/screencasts

Please let me know how you get on.

Keep in touch.
