Can't delete a backup configuration

Can’t delete a backup configuration from the web GUI, getting error: Failed to remove the include/exclude pattern file: remove C:\ProgramData/.duplicacy-web/filters/localhost/3: The system cannot find the file specified.

At first I thought this was caused by a stale web page, but when I tested it myself I realized that this is a bug that always happens when the backup to be deleted doesn’t have patterns set up.

You can ignore the error and refresh the page. The backup should be deleted but the configuration file (~/.duplicacy-web/duplicacy.json) won’t be saved until next time the configuration is updated again and saved.
