When I start SQL backup v5 now I get the following error. It was working fine yesterday and I'm not sure what changed if anything. All I know is now I can't use the product at all

SQLBackup v5

    Hi there,

    Can you try closing SQL Backup and then deleteing the files in

    C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Local Settings\Application Data\Red Gate\SQL Backup\Server Data

    Thanks,

    Additionally, the error message will occur if any of the following are true for the files in the directory "C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Local Settings\Application Data\Red Gate\SQL Backup\Server Data":
    * Your account has the necessary security permissions to write to the file, but the file has the read-only attribute applied.
    * The file is not writeable by your user account, due to restricted security permissions.

    Removing the read-only attribute or ensuring the user account has the necessary read/write permissions to the directory should also resolve the problem.

    I would get this message with a couple of dat files in this folder and lockfile.pid in the parent folder being compressed. Permission were ok, no read-only attributes. I'll see how it goes...

    SQL Backup version 5.4.0.55

    After initially deleting the files in C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Local Settings\Application Data\Red Gate\SQL Backup\Server Data, The problem first went away for a day or so. But it returned, and I discovered a couple of the files had been compressed, so I decompressed them. I checked the permissions, and my user account has full rights to both the folder and the files. But that didn't seem to help.

    I can start SQL Backup, and I can perform backup and restore, but if I leave it up, I get one of these messages for each instance SQL Backup shows (at least that is my suspicion with three error dialogs and three instances.
