I changed the read-error part from:
    subject = subjtmpl & " (read errors)"
    body =    "Errors occurred reading some files or directories " & _
        "for backup on " & hostname & "." _ & vbCrLf & _
        vbCrLf & _
        "===================================" & vbCrLf & _
        "THESE FILES ARE NOT BEING BACKED UP" & vbCrLf & _
        "===================================" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
        "Check the logs on "&hostname&" for the files and " & _
        "directories which caused" & vbCrLf & _
        "these errors, and take appropriate action." & vbCrLf & _
        vbCrLf & _
        "Other files are being backed up." & vbCrLf
    SendMail from,sendto,subject,body

to
    subject = subjtmpl & " (read errors)"
    body =    "Errors occured reading some files or directories for 
backup on "&hostname&"." _
            & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
            "===================================" & vbCrLf & _
            "THESE FILES ARE NOT BEING BACKED UP" & vbCrLf & _
            "===================================" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
            "Check the logs on "&hostname&" for the files and 
directories which caused" & _
            "these errors, and take appropraite action." & vbCrLf & 
vbCrLf & _
            "Other files are being backed up." & vbCrLf
    SendMail from,sendto,subject,body

The latter section I had in my older notify script. I couldn't locate 
the fault in the one supplied, but I'm not familiar with the language of 
these scripts.

Everytime it runs, I got these errors. So it thinks the file is moved 
everytime?
BackupLocations section:
    GTO
    {
        Path = D:\GTO
    }
   
    Foto's & Afbeeldingen
    {
        Path = D:\Foto's & Afbeeldingen
    }
   
    Application Data
    {
        Path = C:\Documents and Settings\Makaveli\Application Data
        ExcludeDir = C:\Documents and Settings\Makaveli\Application 
Data\Skype
        ExcludeFilesRegex = .(lock)$
        ExcludeFilesRegex = .(.sqlite-journal)$
    }
   
    Bureaublad
    {
        Path = C:\Documents and Settings\Makaveli\Bureaublad
    }

Hope this helps.

Thanks in advance,

Roy

$PATH$ is an existing path on my windows workstation, and $FILENAME$ also
exists. Second $PATH$ is the same as the first.

This directory is not used in any other location, so I don't understand

Box Backup uses the file ID to track renamed files. It keeps a database of 
file IDs by name. If the ID changes between runs, this may indicate that 
the file was moved to a different directory. However, it should not change 
during a run. The only case where I've seen this is when I've created two 
locations using the same path, hence the suggestion in the error message. 
Please could you tell us what's in the BackupLocations section of your
bbackupd.conf?

Cheers, Chris.
