After running the backup again, I'm now getting this error message: "UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xe2 in position 37: ordinal not in range(128)".

Unfortunately, I've encountered this several times in the past. Also, I can no longer see the backup log in the deja-dup gui, only the error message.

I wonder if there's a log file of the entire backup process, so that I could at least determine the problematic file(s)?

Here's the full error message:
