How to skip backup when moving files between folders in the source?

Postby KLU » Sat Jun 17, 2017 11:29 am

Hi guys!

I have a little problem. I'm trying to set up following scenario:

I want to do a backup of folder ABC which has files and multiple subfolders (let's call them ABC1, ABC2 etc.) and I just want to add new/changed files to the backup. So, when I'm adding a file1 to the ABC, only a file1 is added to the existing backup of ABC taken before.

When I create a new subfolder ABC3 in ABC and I try to just move files which already are in ABC (file2, file3, file4) to ABC3, Backup4all makes a double copy. So I have ABC with file2, file3, file4 and a new added ABC3 with file2, file3 and file4. How to skip adding files to the backup that are moved between directories in the same source? Is that even possible?

I tried doing Smart/Mirror/Incremental/Differential and nothing works.

Thanks in advance!
