I am using sbackup as root, because I want to have regular scheduled
backups and that has not been possible with normal user access.
Specifically, nothing has changed in my directory structures at all, the
only change being from 12.10 to 13.04. All my folder names are
alphabetical or alpha-numeric without spaces or odd characters.
My external destination backup drive is the same one as I have been
using for the past 3 or 4 years, always with sBackup (I did try deja dup
for a bit, but decided it was hopeless when it came time to restore
files, so reverted to sbackup), and basically the same sbackup
configuration file, although I have re-built it when I have installed a
new distro release.
Can you tell me the exact path and filename for the sbackup
configuration file, please? Perhaps I can restore it from an earlier
archive, and use it in place of the one which the current installation
prevents from being configured.

Subject: [Bug 1179080] Re: sBackup unable to be configured for external
Date: Tue, 21 May 2013 07:02:39 -
Are you using sbackup as root (super-user) or as (regular) user?
Are there any special (non alphabetical) characters in your directory name(s)?
Could you check if you can set the desired local backup target using the
configuration file (/etc/sbackup.conf for root, or
~/.config/sbackup/sbackup.conf for user)? Look for a line that says 'target = '
and add the target directory after the equal sign (I believe a space between
equal sign and directory name is required).
