More details when ReadError occurs

Would it be possible to get more specific details whenever a ReadError? occurs? At the moment, the NotifyScript is called with a generic error:

// Notify system administrator about the final state of the backup
else if(mReadErrorsOnFilesystemObjects)

but a list of filenames/directory names that caused the problems would be fantastic. Is that implementable, maybe via errorCode or errorSubCode in the same routine?

Do you really want this called thousands of times? What I'd do is to capture the logs between backup-start and backup-finish events and parse them into the form you want.

It was my understanding that the NotifyScript is only called once in case one or more ReadError?(s) occured, not once for every error. I was merely wondering if the message in could read something like

WARNING: Read errors occured for the following files
File A
File M
File Y

This would be very helpful for the e-mail notification that the users might get. It will tell them specifically what files are causing problems. At the moment, the NotifySysAdmin?.vbs defaul script is rather limited in usefulness:

	subject = subjtmpl & " (unknown)"
	body =	"The backup daemon on "&hostname&" reported an unknown error." _
		& vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
		"==========================" & vbCrLf & _
		"==========================" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
		"Please check the logs on "&hostname&"." & vbCrLf
	SendMail from,sendto,subject,body
