Backup data load error message in Acquire

Recommended Posts

Hi forum members

 

I'm new here, so excuse me if I'm making some mistakes.

I've had several Fujis and right now I'm very happy with my XE4 as an always with me cam.

I'm based in Hamburg Germany.

 

Regarding my problem: I've had some quirky behaviour of my XE4 lately, so I decided to do a factory reset, of course I did a backup before via Fuji Acquire software on my Mac running Monterey.

 

1. I did a factory reset and a reset of all custom settings

2. tried to restore via Acquire resulting in the error message "backup data load error"

3. tried another USB cable -> same problem (I'm connected directly to my MacBook Pro)

4. Checked the camera connection setting after the factory reset : it's set to USB RAW Conv/Backup/Restore

5. Made a new backup of the blank camera and tried to restore it -> same problem 

6. checked to version of Acquire, updated but again same problem 

 

 

maybe some of you have an enlightening idea that could help.

The camera is fully visible in Acquire and backups seem to work perfectly, but why doesn't restore work? 🤷🏻‍♂️

I gave Acquire all permissions necessary on my Mac, so that shouldn't be the problem either...

 

I'm running out of ideas what the issue could be....

Squeezed Google to find an answer but no luck.

thanks 🙏🏻

I've encountered this same problem, also on an X-E4. I hadn't had any problems with the camera, I just wanted to test the procedure. Some points:

- I use a PC running Windows

- The version of Acquire is the latest.

- I also own an X-S10 and backup and restore worked fine with that, and I'm using the same cable, etc.

My experience above was with the latest version of Acquire. I have a laptop with a version installed last year and a backup file of X-E4 settings created today with that older version could be restored with either version of Acquire.

It seems likely Fuji introduced a bug with the latest version of Acquire, at lest with regards to the X-E4. Too bad there's no way to submit a bug report.

I heard back from Fuji!

 

They tested my XE4 on their computers PC and MAC. It worked 😳

But they updated the firmware of my XE4 to the latest and the Acquire software had to be the newest version as well.

Their assumption is that the newest Acquire software did not work properly with the older firmware of my XE4, so the backup file must have been faulty from the start.

To be honest I find this more than irritating that their proprietary softwares are not fully compatible. 😤

I will retest Acquire once more once the XE4 is back, but I will test also the backup function of the Fuji Xapp...

 

annoying this is, to say the least 🙄

Possible point!

But it also could be a faulty firmware on the XE4 that disabled proper backups/restores...

Someone in another Forum mentioned though that he had the exact same issue with an GFX-100

I just wished camera manufactures would not only build good cameras but also reliable software. It doesn't seem to be their main goal 🙄

    • Hi all. After a long break from photography I've decided to get back into it and am about to purchase a Fuji X-E2 body (which I deem more than adequate for my needs at this point).    I had previously shot Canon but could never really afford decent glass for it. But I see times have changed and not only do Fuji seem to have some reasonably priced XF lenses, there are a number of recommended 3rd party manufacturers in the game.   I am still very much on a budget but don't need much for my particular interests. Thinking a 10-12mm, a 23-27mm and a 35mm should meet my needs (mainly street with some landscapes) and perhaps a 50mm or 60-100mm later. I'm only interested in prime lenses and reckon it comes down to a decision over whether I want AF or not.   Been looking at the Fujinon f1.4s which tick the boxes but will take me a long time to purchase given my financial situation. Happy to take it slow though if that's the general concensus (would be happier with one very good lens than three average).   The other option is the MF offerings from 7artisans, TTartisans and the like. I could pick up a few with very wide apertures (up to 0.95) very affordably. But I'm interested in the opinions of those who have used and compared them both (Fuji and non-Fuji). I don't have any natural objection to MF as I used it way back for film, but I haven't shot a mirrorless digital with a manual lens and never used zoom focusing, focus peaking etc. From what I've seen it's pretty quick and straightforward if slightly slower than AF. I must admit that the AF on my old canon DSLR used to annoy the hell out of me with the incessant hunting for focus and noise. But that was a long time ago and I'm guessing things have changed (these were also very much lower end Canon lenses).   I've had a search already, but if anyone would mind offering their opinions based on experience I'd be very grateful.   Many thanks...
    • I had this problem. I toggled between the two image disp options (full screen/small window) for OVF in the menu, and now it works again. 
    • Same here with a x h2s connected to a raveneye, losing the raveneye made my recording stop 😭

    • Hey All! I'm new here and desperate! I just upgraded from my XT3 to an XT5 and need tethering advice. A huge part of what I do is tethered shoots and I've been successfully tethering my XT3 with Fuji Tether Pro Plugin to Lightroom for years. It is essential that the software can fully control the camera. First of all it was very difficult to update the existing plugin. You have to remove it and reinstall it,  which doesn't work properly.  In the end,  I had to manually unzip the downloaded update file and enter in the code myself. More importantly.  The update does allow you to focus and take photos but the settings control doesn't work. That's means you can not adjust ISO,  Shutter speed or f-stop with the software. These buttons simply don't work when you click them. Has anybody else experienced this?  Is there perhaps a previous version of the update does work? Has anybody managed to tether with Capture one?  I read there are also bugs. I'm willing to switch systems if it fully works. If I can't fix it I'm stuck with an Xt5 that I paid a lot of money for that I can not use for its intended purposes.
