Was the backup that created the file run successfully? Did you check the corresponding log file from the folder administrator/components/com_akeeba/backup?

Where does your Akeeba Backup store the backup files, in its own folder on your server or with one of the Cloud providers?

Are your backup files in one piece or are there several parts? Did the transfer of the file to your PC complete 100 percent? I have seen a similar message when that was not the case.

Also it recommends using FTP to download the archive files rather than clicking on the download button in the manage backups section.

I have similar problem. I make backup from backend of my site. My backing up is successful.
When I want to download bacup file from ./administrator/components/com_akeeba/backup/, there is no bacup file. I didnt change the path and in managing backups in my backend there is this path confirmed. I have the newest version of akeeba backup

Can you please recommend me something?

Thank you

Maybe the user you login with does not have permissions to the files.
