Article ID: 5300
Reviewed: 08/02/2018

Product Version:
AhsayOBM: Post-7.3
OS: Windows

Problem Description

When creating a file backup set for a Windows computer with no password setup, the following error message is displayed:

Blank password is not allowed because of an account restriction. Please set a password for your account.

Cause

Even for a Windows computer with no password setup, a password is required if the pre-define backup sources (e.g. Desktop, Documents, Favorites, Outlook, Windows Live Mail) are selected as backup source.

Resolution

To resolve the issue, un-select all pre-define backup sources.

Manually select the corresponding folder and files afterward, by selecting I would like to choose the files to backup, then Show files. Select the corresponding directory path (e.g. C:\Users\username\Desktop).
