ProcessReparsePoint() errors on node_modules directory

Brand-new user currently in the trial period but loving the app so far. :)

My only complaint is that every sync shows errors for node_modules directories. The errors are all the same:

ProcessReparsePoint() failed with a000001d

Context: D:\path\to\project\node_modules\path\to\module

There are no other errors and no variation between the errors except the "path\to" segments.

What's particularly strange is that in my settings, I have a rule to "Exclude folder node_modules". I don't need them copied over, but the errors still persist.

It's not really a dealbreaker because the backup is succeeding, it's more just noisy to see errors every time when it's working exactly as I'd expect it to.

This looks like one of more obscure reparse point types, it's not even documented properly. Bvckup 2 simply doesn't know what to do with it and it complains to... erm... raise the awareness :)

I'll get this added to the next release, but meanwhile:

1. Right-click on the backup job
2. Select Open folder > Configuration & Logging
3. In Notepad create a text file called override.ini and put this in it:

        conf.scanning.rp_as_normal.f    a000001d
        conf.scanning.rp_as_normal.d    a000001d

4. Save the ini, restart bvckup2


Re: the fact that it still complains even though these entries are excluded from the backup - this is because reparse points are processed first and exclude/include filters are applied next. But it makes sense to revise this to cleanly accommodate your exact setup. Let me see what we can do.

I followed the steps you provided and the backup now runs successfully with "no errors." Thanks for your help! :)
