Synology Hyper Backup: “Access to destination denied” after deleting user


I recently deleted a user who had previously created a local Hyper Backup task. This cased a problem with the backup tasks where the Owner has become "Not available" and the backup fails with the error "Access to destination denied". How do I fix this?

Use the File Station app to browse and find the .hbk file. Right click on this file and go to Properties. Change the owner to a new owner who has access to the shared folder that the backup is saved to.
