Backups often fail

Update: with any luck I'll add a screen cap of the detailed log file.

Looking for suggestions. Out of the last 15 backup attempts, 11 failed.  Setup is Macbook running OS X 10.15.7 Catalina.  Backing up to a QNAP NAS through a gigabit ethernet switch.  One possibility: my lovely wife's iMac backs up to the QNAP using TimeMachine.  No, I didn't point Vimalin at the TimeMachine partition.  Is it possible that there are collisions between Vimalin and TimeMachine?

Please be gentle with me.  I love this product but am still something of a rookie with Fusion and its intricacies.

Just a dumb economist fumbling his way through technology.  Also appreciate wine.

Re: Backups often fail


That certainly is not the way it should be.
Can you email me your support bundle please?

You can create a support bundle from the help menu.
Email it to and I will have a look to see if we can figure out what is happening here.
