I'm not sure if this is already implemented or not, but it's a useful feature. I'm currently looking for a backup solution that is easy to use but that also uses VSS and clears the archive bit in Windows. I note that VSS is a long-standing request with several people being assigned to it over the years. The other item however I can't find any mention of.
The issue I'm having is a package used by one of my clients nags the user to make a backup if one hasn't been done recently. It apparently uses the archive bit to determine if the database has been backed up.
Unfortunately, Windows 7 no longer uses NTbackup. The new Windows backup is a dumbed down program that doesn't clear the archive bit. It's one saving grace is that it does use VSS so it frequently succeeds in making a backup.
So I'd really like to see VSS working but also need confirmation that the program clears the archive bit on Windows files it backs up.
