      Description

      It looks like the backup plugin tries to copy a directory instead of a file and stops the backup at this point. Also the configured compression to zip files wasn't working, probably due to the exception.

      I haven't recognized this issue immediately, because a full backup and 6 incremental backups were partially stored in the backup folder. It would be helpful to show an error on the thinBackup Jenkins page, if a backup failed due to any issue.
