We are currently using BackupPC 2.1.2 for backing up both Windows XP
For incremental backups of Windows machines (running XP/NT/2000/2003),
we find that any files copied into directory that needs to be backed
up is not getting covered under the incremental backup. However, if
a new file is added into the same directory, the incremental backup
takes the backup of this new file. It looks like the smbclient used
for incremental backup checks for the modification time of the file
to be backed up. On windows machines, the modification time of the
file is not changed on a copy from another directory to a new directory.
Is anyone aware of the workaround to this issue in using the backuppc?
Are there any possible registry settings on Windows machine that can be
changed to make the modification time as the time at which it was copied.
Thanks in advance,
