preserve NTFS access rights?

Post by khamees79 »

I'm testing your product on a 2008R2 server. I mounted (Map Network drive)some remote servers locally,
then started taking backup of the desired files to a local disc on the server. I use MIRROR backup

1: Is this the best practice to take backup files on several remote servers (connected via VPN, or on the same LAN)?
2: I noticed that the files inherit the NTFS access rights of the Destination folder, How can I ensure that it keeps it's original NTFS rights?
3: Does it backup the Open files when the source is a (mapped network drive), and Windows 2008?

Kind regards

1. If you want to also backup the NTFS permissions, you need to use the Mirror backup type.
2. To copy the NTFS permissions, please check that option in Backup Properties->Mirror page.
3. Backup4all will copy open files only if they are on a local hard drive.
Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here:
