The error message "Backup Completed Partially due to files and folder skipped" will occur due to the following reasons:

  • Backup is scheduled with files/folder but some files\folders getting skipped due to ‘Read Failure’ at the client’s side.
  • It may happen due to some permission problem. The user running Vembu service do not have enough permission to read the file for backup.
  • Some file\folder is unreadable or corrupted in the client machine and, if the file is exclusively locked by another application during backup process.


Please check the following details from your client machine to resolve this issue:

1) If the file gets skipped while taking backup, it will be noted as “skipped.lst” file in installation location.

2) Open file "Vembu Installation_Home/report/backup/BackupName-ServerName -skipped.lst" file from your client machine.

3) Please check the file details in "skipped.lst" and check the reason for skipping. If the skipped file doesn't have enough permission for particular user (the user under which Client agent service is running) then provide full permission for those files.

4) If the file gets corrupted or unreadable with any user account, then exclude those files from backup list by editing the backup schedule.
