Ubuntu 14.10 Backup gets stuck at pagemap?


Hi all,

I'm using Backup that comes with Ubuntu 14.10 and it always gets "stuck" at /proc/2291/task/2291/pagemap. Any idea what this file is and why it never finishes backing up? I added /proc/ to the ignore list but Backup keeps trying to back it up anyway.

Thanks,
Kevin

On my PC, running Mint
Code:
/proc/2291/task/2291/pagemap
is an empty file.

Ubuntu 14.10 is still beta (test stage) and since you have volunteered to test the system prior to its final release, go to the link below and you will find information relevant to testing and at the bottom of the page, a link to where you can post problems you are having with their test version so they can improve it prior to its actual stable release:

Might be user error - /proc should never be included in backups.
