Problem Description
When starting a backup / verify / restore operation, I get an error code 52 almost immediately.
Cause
Error 52 idicates that edgemenu or edge.nightly could not communicate with the volume switching subsystem.

Usually the log file /usr/lib/edge/lists/LogFile will contain additional information.

Solution
Make sure that the directories /usr/lib/edge/system/tmp /usr/lib/edge/system/locks and /usr/lib/edge/system/pipes exist. If any of these are missing, you may get an error 52.
