System Request startup Message

I have no idea where this message is coming from when my A2000 boots up.
I checked Startup-sequence and User Startup and do not see any "Backup" assignment

thoughts?



System Request

Please insert volume
Backup
in any drive

That's probably only nit-picking but it's the lack of an assignment which causes the message. If there was an Assign instruction assigning Backup: to some directory, then the message would not pop up. It asks for the volume because it does not find an assign, volume or drive of that name.

Well, you checked startup-sequence and user-startup for Backup. Check also all programs run from these scripts if they have Backup in their config.

Also check programs run from WBStartup and their configs.

Finally check all preferences. It might be some wallpaper, sound or something else which has been loaded from Backup: in former times.

Additonally check the icons in WBStartup. There might be a reference to Backup: in the default tool of some project icon.

Adding to what Thomas has said, perhaps adding the backup assignment (pointing to a temp directory) will change the error into something that gives a clue as to what is requiring it?

Check your ENV: configs as well. SYS:Prefs/Env-Archive or else it will just keep happening if you check ENV:, find it and fix it there. You must edit the file in the Prefs folder.

OK, Thomas and the Amiga Team were correct...I temporarily assigned Backup to RAM: and the message went away and I began troubling shooting. Looks like I had statement in my ENV: sys path w.r.t amidock.prefs. "Backup: blah blah blah"

OK, refresh time:
I assume the amidock.prefs file is getting loaded in ENV: somewhere? When I look at my Amidock GUI configuration, I don't see where such statement resides...how can I fix this file.

unless I manually EDIT the file itself?
Thanks guys
