    We have Cloudberry Backup Server edition 6.3.0.276 . we have a File backup job backing up to a NAS.

    the job completed and says :

    Files scanned: 450880
    Data scanned: 229.3 GB
    Files to backup: 450883
    Data to backup: 229.3 GB
    Files copied: 450883
    Data copied: 229.3 GB
    Files failed to backup: 0


    but the email says: ERROR: System and hidden files skipped: 2585

    is there any way for me to see what these 2585 files are (it just shows the successful files in the history)

    we have 'skip hidden/system files' checked but i want to check that these files are defiantly not needed

    That's a known problem, will be fixed in the next update. Currently there is no workaround, unfortunately.

    If you want to simply search your system for hidden or system files because you're worried some files may be marked as such incorrectly and are not backing up, you can use the DIR command from a command prompt. You'll need to run it twice for Hidden and System files:

    C:\Users\myname\Desktop>dir *.* /a:h /b /s > HiddenFiles.txt
    
    C:\Users\myname\Desktop>dir *.* /a:s /b /s > SystemFiles.txt

    Further to David's reply, i found easier to issue:

    dir /a:h C:\Users\John\Desktop
    dir /a:s C:\Users\John\Desktop
