Syncrify Troubleshooting Guide


Check the services of the machine and make sure that Backup Monitor service is running. This service controls your scheduled backups.


Depending on which type of Linux machine you have you may have to look in different places. However, start by checking the script that runs the backup. Make sure that this script uses Absolute Paths for all variables, including the path to Java, the path to SyncrifyClient.jar, and potentially the path to the data folder.

Checkout this page for more information on moving the data folder: Moving Data Folder
