Re: Preserving "first version"

But the file added on Tuesday, when 1st backup was done on Monday, will not be in the first full backup, right? On Friday its 4th version would be created and backed up - will 1st version from Tuesday be preserved in such a case?

Re: Preserving "first version"

If I set up daily incremental backup keeping 3 file versions, 1st run on Monday and a file added on Tuesday and changed every day - will I have original version of the added file next Monday?

Hello Is this possible to define Source paths using wildcards, fe. C:\Users\*\Documents to back up documents for all users on a machine? Similarly, is it possible to use such paths in plugins - for example to back up browser config for all user on a machine? This enables defining sources once for al...

Moving source to another drive

Hello

I need to move backup source directory to another drive (drive letter changes).

How do I adjust backup definition, so that an existing backup can be used?

Test reliability

When I execute Test action, does B4A check contents of the files, using some hash?

I've had some problems with my backup drive, and now I am running Test, and I would like to know, if Test reliably assures, that every bit of the copies are OK.

Regards,

Running commands for backup group

Hello

Is there possibility to run backup of a group, executing a command pre- and post-backup, as in case of a single backup job?

I use an external HDD as backup destination, and I would like to mount it before backing up a group and unmount after completion.

Backup to not mounted partition

Hello Please consider adding possibility of backing up to not mounted partition (ie. without drive letter and not mounted to any directory). This adds a layer of safety: - accidental disk operations would not be able to damage backup - ransomware would not be able to encrypt backup files and also a ...
