Mirror backup is doing incremental

Postby bbatchman77 » Thu Nov 05, 2015 11:20 am

Is there a way for the Mirror backup type to copy everything selected every day? the problem is I rotate media weekly so on Monday I get everything, Tuesday I only get what has not changed since Monday, etc, etc.

Hi,

You cannot do that in FBackup.
Such feature is available only in our commercial edition Backup4all.

I am doing Mirror backup.
1. What happen if a delete a file from the source? Does it delete also in the backup ?
2. Is there a way to do this?
3. If I want to restore a file I can just copy it back from the Backup disk (mirror) . Is this correct?

Thank you.
Carlos

Hi,

1. Yes, if the "Remove excluded or deleted files from backup" option is selected, the deleted files will be removed from destination too.
2. Yes, in Backup Properties->Mirror page, select the above mentioned option.
3. Yes, you can manually copy it back or use the restore option from FBackup.
