If warning or error notifications are shown while the software is running, they must be examined and analyzed in detail to resolve the cause of the problem. There can be multiple causes of warnings or errors for example invalid computer settings, internet connection problems, incorrectly entered information while creating backup, lack of administrator permission, unable to access open files etc.
To examine notifications for more detail:
1. In notification form click Show.
2. In Log data list click Result.
3. Find Warnings and/or Errors
4. Try to understand the causes of the problem (the most frequent notifications can be seen below).
5. After troubleshooting click Dismiss in the notification form.
6. Repeat the action (backup creation or backup restore) you were doing before notification was shown.
