Archiving Option index files location displays an error on the Backup Exec server 2014 during reinstallation


When installing Backup Exec 2014 (Archiving Option enabled) on a server where Backup Exec 2010 R3 or earlier versions (Archiving Option enabled) was installed, the old index files location path is pre populated on the Archive Index Path page. If the path is not changed prior to clicking Next, the application displays an error message for the Archive Option index files location.


Error Message

Invalid folder selected. Please select an empty folder.



Enter another non-empty path for the index files location and then proceed with the installation.


Note: Backup Exec continues to use the old index location path. Do not delete the old index location path from the system.
