bart 2.2.0 error when setting thread_count

attempting to run a full backcup with Bart 2.2 and recieving the following error.  has anyone seen this before.

"cannot write archive header for file 'pgbackups/backupxxxx_dd-mm-yy_000001.sql', File size out of range"


I set the thread-count to 3 as i wanted to increase the backup speed to avoid having to change the wal_keep_seg on the server.

Re: bart 2.2.0 error when setting thread_count

Hi Matt,


Can you please provide the following details:-


1. Bart.cfg file and Bart logs 

2. ls -ltrh $PGDATA


If any .sql file is present in $PGDATA directory then move it to another location and try to take backup.
