Limit by file version conflict

Post by R_Edwards » Wed Jan 29, 2014 4:35 pm

I recently upgraded ver 5 from ver 4. When I click on the properties I am receiving a warning message "Limit by file version conflicts with standard zip splits. Splitted files will not be deleted from the zip files when needed. I am receiving this warning on two of my backup jobs.

Hi,

Do you have a backup log from Backup4all 4 for that job?
If yes, please send it to us at support[at]backup4all[dot]com

To solve the problem in Backup4all 5, please open Backup Properties->Compression and change the encryption type.

This job is run monthly. The group has 10 jobs. 8 jobs are for individual users area on our server and 2 jobs are for shared areas call Doc and Library. it is the last two jobs (Doc and Library) that receive the warning message when I open the properties. They are scheduled to run on the 1st of each month.

I tried to attach the log file for Doc but it was too large. Below is a shortened version (less all the file names)

Sorry, I forgot the add some additional information. One thing I noticed, after I click OK to the warning message and the properties window opens. Under Compression Options, The Create Independent Splits is checked. If I click Save and then open the properties again I don't receive the warning message, but now I am unable to uncheck that option for this backup job.

When I open one of the users monthly backup properties, this option is not checked.

Below is a listing of the backup files for Doc_Monthly

Hi,

Limiting the number of file versions will automatically select the Create independent splits option.
