FileMaker Server 11 backup issues

Your post

I have a recurring issue with a database backup losing its windows security credentials.


Windows 2008 SVR R2 fully patached.


Filemaker Server


There is a scheduled daily backup (which works fine) and keeps 7 copies and then deletes older ones.


But I get an email alert as follows:


2011-11-23 23:00:01    Server Events    Error    Error occurred while deleting backup folder "filewin:/D:/Program Files (x86)/FileMaker/FileMaker Server/Data/Backups1/Daily_2011-11-15_2300/", some files or folders could not be deleted. (20402).


I look at this folder and view the security details and see that the database has "lost" its credentials. Not good...

Backups are crucial for my client and this repeated event is worrying.


I have verified that the Filemaker service logs on as a the "local system" account which appears to be correct.


Can anyone help with this?
