I've uploaded a new Windows binary build for the latest monthly snapshot, 
which you can find here:

  https://www.boxbackup.org/trac/wiki/WindowsClientReleases

Please give it a try and let us know if you have any problems with it.

On second thoughts I think this may have been caused by the account being 
locked after the connection was killed due to a timeout.

Please could you try enabling both of these?

Set MaximumDiffingTime to 300 (seconds) for a start, and KeepAliveTime to 
60 (seconds).

Using the new build, you should be able to log to a file with the LogFile 
setting in the configuration, and set the level used for this logging with 
LogFileLevel (e.g. = debug).

Cheers, Chris.
