This is not a bug but an enhancement request

I didn't see a location for entering enhancement requests.

I like to run mirror backups to have the files readly available

I have split the backup into multiple jobs where each on runs on a seperate day.

There is one folder which is too large to run the backup in a signle day.

Since I do want to back up the entire folder and the files in to folder change selecting indivisual files is no an option.

Mirror works fine as it copies files across but when I stop the job and restart it the next day the catalog was never updated so the job starts over from the beginning.

What I would like to suggest as an enhancement would be to allow for updating the catalog every hour during the backup. This way if the job fails or is interrupted it does not need to start over from the beginnig

We have a Stop backup feature available in our commercial edition: Backup4all. When you press the Stop button, the backup will finish processing the current file and will save the backup catalog. Next time the backup will continue with the remaining files.
