View the datastore exception report

Find out more about issues that arose when your datastore last updated.

Sometimes, Local Copy may not be able to update all of the data in the datastore  during an update. For example, the event log for a document may not be able to be downloaded for some reason.

When an issue like this occur, Local Copy adds a warning or error to the exception report. It will continue to do this until the issue is resolved in a subsequent update.

An error is recorded when an entire record is not available; for example, a mail could not be downloaded.

A warning is recorded when part of a record is not available; for example, the mail itself was downloaded, but not the mail attachment.

In the exception report:

  • a red exclamation icon indicates an error.
  • a yellow exclamation icon indicates a warning.

When an exception occurs, its details, including the date and time it occurred, are recorded in the report. If the same exception occurs during a subsequent update, the count in the Retries column of the report is increased by one.

The total number of exceptions that occurred during an update is shown under the # Issues column on the View Jobs tab.
