Allow "full-backup" settings in PBS scripts

  • I use PA as my main backup software using its PBS scripting feature. However, the UI prevents me from doing a standard “full” backup. Namely, I want to be able to archive all files in a folder, REGARDLESS of their archive attribute, then clear their archive attributes when I’m done, to indicate that they have been backed up. However, in the PBS wizard UI, as soon as I turn off the “Add only if archive attribute is set” setting (to ignore the archive attribute and backup everything), the “Clear archive attribute” check box becomes disabled. I have never understood this behavior because it prevents PA from performing a classic “full” backup. Please keep the “Clear archive attribute” available when the “Add only if archive attribute is set” option is turned off. Thank you.
