I've been successfully using Java SMF Backup for a couple of years now to backup three forums (all of the forums are currently running on SMF 1.1.8).

The scheduled backups have been running successfully with no hitches, until about a month ago (I only realised there was a problem this morning though when I decided to clear up old backups from my hard drive).

The reason I'm wondering if there's a maximum backup size Java SMF Backup will handle though is that two of the forums have still been backing up fine - they're both small forums and the compressed backup files are less than 2MB for both of them (one's less than 1MB). With my main forum though, which is much larger and busier, the compressed backup file's over 13MB. When the backup runs (I have it set to backup when Java SMF Backup starts and at 8pm each evening) the backup appears to run okay, but the resulting file appears to be empty, with a filesize of 0kb. The last successful backup of the forum that doesn't have a file with a filesize of 0kb seems to be from the beginning of March, which IIRC was around the time I upgraded all of the forums from 1.1.7 to 1.1.8, although I don't think that's relevant, as the backups for the other two forums seem to be fine.

I've just installed the new 1.3.0 beta of Java SMF Backup, as I wondered if the older version I was using was the problem, but exactly the same thing's happening - seems to run okay, but the resulting filesize is 0kb... ???

Any idea what might be going wrong?
