"Weird" characters in password fails

I'm using Vertical Backup 1.1.1 and have issues with storing my password. I'm using a B2 storage and store a storage encryption along with the keys in the passwords file.

When I remove my storage password all is working except I have to type in my password. When I put the password in the passwords file, I get the below error. It might be because my password contains a @

Traceback (most recent call last): File "vertical_main.py", line 143, in File "vertical_backup.py", line 504, in backupCommand File "vertical_backup.py", line 346, in loadConfig File "vertical_utils.py", line 345, in generateKeyFromPassword File "vertical_utils.py", line 329, in pbkdf2_bin File "hmac.py", line 136, in new File "hmac.py", line 75, in init TypeError: character mapping must return integer, None or unicode Failed to execute script vertical_main Command exited with non-zero status 255

This is a bug. I'll roll out an update tomorrow.

Thanks for swift action!

The bug has been fixed in version 1.1.2. It was caused by the storage password read from the json file being an unicode string which caused the key generation function to error out.

Thanks! It's working now.
