What does this error means? “PCLZIP_ERR_READ_OPEN_FAIL (-2) : Unable to open file ‘…’ in binary read mode”

Hi, I just received this message when trying to backup to dropbox Dropbox – Backup wasn’t created. PCLZIP_ERR_READ_OPEN_FAIL (-2) : Unable to open file ‘name of the file’ in binary read mod. Not sure what this means or how to fix.

Probably, you do not have enough read/write permissions.Please, check your access permissions of this file and change these access permissions if they are wrong. They must be 0644 for files and 0755 for folders.

Or contact your hosting provider and ask him to do it for you.
