Bvckup crash - Not responding

AndyMidd :

Jul 07, 2020

V81.4. Windows Insider build 20161 64 bit). 24GB.
I created a new backup (similar to an existing one, but to a removable drive).
It started the copy process, got about a third of the way through, then the funny stuff started,
1) "Not responding" intermittently.
2) Copy process hung (at least no progress indicated on GUI, stuck on one file),
3) Resource monitor showed 18 Bvckup threads - all using zero cpu,
4) GUI window kept vanishing, and restoring.
5) Attempts to use any window controls ignored - including window move,
6) Finally Windows closed the app.

Eventually I managed to restart the app (the first time it closed itself), and all resumed normally.
Everything seemed to point to the removable drive (a USB Hdd), but there is nothing in the event log, and an error scan revealed nothing.

The program bvckup2.exe version stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Security and Maintenance control panel.

And there is nothing recorded in the log file 'USER'\Appdata\Local\Bvckup2\bvckup2.log - for about 15 minutes before (and including) the crash.

I have the Windows WER minidump.

I have no ready answer for you, this is something I haven't seen before.

"Not responding" condition means that the program's UI thread stopped fetching UI messages from the program's queue. Based on what you are describing it would seem that the UI was preoccupied with something else and had little time to service the message queue. I can't readily think of what it could've been.

That said, I really doubt this is related to the USB drive being used.

I assume you don't run any sort of skinning/theming 3rd party software? Something that would hook into normal window message processing and rendering.

Secondly, do you have any periodic _monthly_ jobs?

The only way to resolve this would be for you to keep an eye on this and see if it's reproducible. I can only see that the next release will have some diagnostics to try and catch the details of this if it happens.

If you are OK with sharing bvckup2.log, please forward a copy to and I'll take a look. I hear you about nothing being recorded for 15 mins prior to the incident, but it won't hurt to have a look.

Thanks (quick respose, too!)
I will send the logs.

No skinning or theming apps: I usually work with full screen windows, never see the background....

No, no periodic _monthly_ jobs.

Its the first time I've seen this with Bvckup, so not confident of a repeat.

Now there's another wrinkle: when I restarted Bvckup, it showed logs in its window that don't exist in the file log. These logs are partly for the missing time in the file log. It may be coincidence, but this all started around the time of a new task to newly plugged in USB. For me, its always the last thing that is the suspect!

Yes, The UI queue was stuck - but the other apps on Windows are OK/normal.

Oh oh, just seen a wrinkle: I develop a .NET/c# application, with Visual Studio (16.6.3). Bvckup saves my work on detect changes - its always been happy to it until now. Today, when I start debugging my app, Bvckup GUI gets unhappy: the flashing/window gone and back, the close X highlighting itself.  SO in the logs this is after about 13.30.
