iDrive backups fail - File / Folder does not exist

iDrive Backup

iDrive backups fail every time. Detailed logs show error "Reason: File / Folder does not exist" for some files. These files were actually deleted from the hard drive intentionally by the user, not sure why iDrive was flagging this as an error... Everything else was backed up as expected.
