Problem with backup to workstation

Problem with backup to workstation
« on: September 26, 2012, 04:23:24 PM »
I recently did a clean install and then restored from back up.  Now whenever the backups are supposed to happen all I get is an e-mail that says "Backup terminated: pre-backup failed - status: 256"

Any help would be appreciated.

A tip to help you resolve issues.
Search the Forums on the error or message phrase
ie in this case do a search of the Forums (see link at top of Forums) on
Backup terminated: pre-backup failed - status: 256

You will get many search results, one of which located here
suggested this

Search /var/log/messages starting from line "Processing event: pre-backup" for the action script that causes the error.

If you do not understand what to do about whatever you find, then report that information from the log file back here.
Please search before asking, an answer may already exist.
