  1. Backup error

    I have two projects, both with external exhibits. On the smaller one the backup runs fine. On the larger one, I get an error message "OLE exception error. Exception code c0000005. OLE object may be corrupt." I ran maintenance and seven errors were found and corrected. One exhibit file was found missing and I deleted it. Ran the backup again and the same problem occurred. Both times if I click "Ignore" after the error message it tells me the backup is complete, but it doesn't even create the file. I then ran the backup again but unchecked the "External Exhibits" checkbox under "Project Items" and the backup immediately runs fine, no error messages. My exhibit folder is in the default path. I want to store my backups and exhibits remotely in case my computer ever fails. I think I can just store the backup file remotely, then also save the exhibit folder remotely. That way if my computer crashes, or if I ever have to restore to a new computer, I can just make sure the exhibit folder is in the correct path. Is that correct? I'm also wondering why the error is occurring.
