Hidden file 'exclude' ?

Hi, FBackup is a brilliant piece of software, but I am wondering if there is any way to exclude hidden files as an option? Backing up my music, it looks like MS has put a huge number of hidden files in the individual album folders (mainly many variants of jpg files). The same also happens on other d...

Re: permissions problem

Thanks - all sorted with the latest release.
All Samba permissions etc now work correctly on a restore operation. Now restoring old backups to a new PC.
Thank you for the fast resolution.

Re: permissions problem

Hi, I appreciate that you will have QA test and sign off processes, but do you have a possible ETA for the 'fix' to FBackup for the permissions issue you managed to reproduce? Just that I have several new PCs at home to migrate data to from existing backups and it would be great to be able to roughl...

Re: permissions problem

Great - Thanks.
As a final question, when restoring files, are the original created and modified dates preserved? I think this is not possible with directories, but for obvious reasons photos without exif data need their original creation and modified dates preserved.
Many thanks.

Re: permissions problem

After a bit more testing, interestingly Microsoft have a small utility called RichCopy which will copy selected directories from the QNAP NAS to 'any' windows PC (if user is correctly logged in) with all the permissions. Is anyone from FBackup able to comment on this odd behaviour when trying to 're...

Re: permissions problem

Hi. Unfortunately some of the older backups were from a PC with FAT partitions. My question I guess is, more specifically, how can permissions be given to 'restored' files other than simple read and write to everyone? I am puzzled as to why FBackup does not allow the option for the current user to h...

permissions problem

Hi. I have been using FBackup since version 4 without any issues, Imagine my surprise when setting up 2x Windows 10 PCs and restoring backed up date to find the permissions all messed up. My NAS being used is a QNAP. If I drah and drop a folder(s) to the new PC, permissions are all OK. If I use FBac...
