I'm a new user of FB, but I'd like to make a few requests for future enhancements...
- It'd be nice if there was some way to visually differentiate a "Mirror" job from a "Full" job in the job panel. A few ways might be to 1) group the two job types separately in the panel or 2) provide a unique icon for each job type.
- I like the info that's shown in the main panel when a job is selected, though I think it could be improved. First, when a job runs, the "Last backup on" info doesn't seem to be updated unless something was actually backed up. For instance, I have a mirror job that runs nightly. Many times, there's nothing new to back up. Looking at the info panel, the "Last backup on" date doesn't change unless something was actually copied. That makes me think the backup didn't run as scheduled, and I have to do some investigation to verify that everything's OK. A better solution might be to update the "Last backup on" date each time the backup runs, and then add an additional info record that states the number of folders/files that were backed up. That way, at a glance, I could tell that the backup did run as expected, but that 0 files/folders were actually modified.
- It'd be nice if the info panel contained a quick link (or button) to the last backup log for the current job. That'd be a little easier than the current context menu access (although that should be retained also).
Anyway, thanks for your work on FB. I like what I see so far...
Oh, could we maybe get a specic "Feature Requests" forum added to better organize such requests?
