On my network of Windows machines, I have a Maxtor network drive that natively runs some form of Linux. As far as I can tell, it does not have working Archive bits - at least, that is why I assume I'm unable to back it up with an XCOPY that simply inspects the A attribute.
My question:
If I upgrade to Backup4All Pro (to allow backing up of network drives) will I be able to back up any new or changed files on this drive? (I guess my underlying question is "Does FBackup/Backup4All inspect/catalog times and dates or does it use the A attribute?").

Hi,
With FBackup, only the catalog time and dates and CRC criteria are used.

With Backup4all you can also use the archive bit.

Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here: https://www.backup4all.com/backup4all-monitor.html
