Hi Roberto,
looks like the backup task has not the right to write to the zip-file (Read-only)

ok. And if so, where do I change the process rights? It seems strange I have to do it …The backup process should have read, write and delete rights on the USB disk, otherwise how do you delete old backups?

you don’t have to change the process, you’d check your USB disk filesystem :wink:

Found the following at https://askubuntu.com/questions/551899/errno-30-read-only-file-system:

If Linux detects a problem on the harddrive, it will switch the filesystem to read only to prevent damage to the filesystem.

You can try to reformat your disc (Which file-system did you use?) and give it a second try.
Also you can look for the permissions which are set.

ls -al /mnt/backup/neth

I prepared the HD as a manual, and it is the second that does so.
I will be unlucky …

good morning,
I did another test:
I set up backup to a folder on the network.

Configuration.

The result.

you’ve been asked to post here some info, please do, thank you

For the last post, restarting the system, the backup started working properly.
Next, I’m testing again usb disk, and let me know.
Thank you
