Initial Backup Keeps Pausing

Backblaze keeps pausing, and still shows 'Initial Backup' even though I have 0 files remaining:


This indicates that there are some files that Backblaze cannot currently backup, so it cannnot complete you initial backup.  If Backblaze is unable to backup a file, it will temporarily skip the file and come back to it later.    Here are the most common things that will prevent Backblaze from uploading a file:

  • The permissions on the file will not allow us to read the file for backup.
  • The file is open in another program/application. 
  • This file is on an external drive which is not plugged in.
