Hi,


I am running Fbackup 4.4.205 and have a problem with the problem with the date format Backup summary screen which is in MM/DD/YYYY format rather than dd/mm/yyyy. Any ideas how to change?

Hi,


FBackup is using your OS system local time format. Please change that format and run again the backup.

Hi,


We don't have such problems here. Do you have the same problem if you restart FBackup?

What about the data of the files in destination?

Is it correctly shown?

Sorry for the delay in responding, problem with format only shows up with this tool, it's still a problem with the latest version, the destination files are ok, as is the fkc.

i have just noticed the date format is also wrong in the back up and application log file, extracts included.

Hi,


Please open Notepad and press F5. What is the date format inserted?

The displayed date is 21:22 22/06/2010, I don't know if it's relevant but I am running Win7 (64bit), and I noticed another post called "Backup scheduled daily does not always run" which refers to the date as 2/17, so is this a Win7 issue?

Hi,


As you can see the date format used by FBackup is the same used by Windows. DD/MM/YYYY

If you change it in Windows, it will be automatically changed in FBackup too.

Hi,


Sorry but you have mis-read the postings. FBackup is formated mm/dd/yy (see last but 1 posting), and the desktop format is dd/mm/yy (as per last post).


regards,


Ian.
