changing Type>Options results in a complete all files backup?

Post by fitness88 »

When I change any of the Type>Options settings for an existing Mirror backup the result is a complete all files backup for the next backup.
Is this normal behaviour?

Also, when I change the name of an existing backup job in the properties>General tab do I have to change the name of the folder and .fkc file at the destination?

Thank you

Hi,

Changing the settings on File->Options, should not trigger a full backup.
Can you tell us exactly which options you changed?

Changing the name of the backup job in Backup Properties will also change the name of the catalog and the backup in destination. There is no need to manually edit them.

I changed the name of the backup then decided after a few backups to change the name of the destination folder name and the actual backup. Problems started from there.
Can't remember the options scenario.
I ended up deleting the backup and destination folder and starting over...so far all is ok.

Hi,

Changing the destination of a backup will trigger a new complete backup job, as the local catalog file is deleted.
