  • At random, an error occurs and the available options are Retry or Switch To

CAUSE

Any project that contains an "Incomplete Data" error for at least one injection cannot be backed up. This is logged as a defect with PCS tracking number 52221.

FIX or WORKAROUND

There are two resolutions for this issue:

  1. The defect is corrected in Service Release 2; upgrade to Empower 3 Service Release 2 or higher.
