.pa archive with backup parameter 'overwrite not activated' allways overwrite the archive
Two tests are involved (zip / pa)
Parameter ‘overwrite previous file’ ON (activated)
First initial run, backup created with time stamp 23:05
Second run : ok, backup is overwriten, new time stamp 23:07
Parameter set to ‘overwrite’ OFF (not activated)
First run with new parameter setting shows a time stamp of 23:31:
Second run : Backup to D:\Backups\PA Backups\Test overwrite\test zip overwrite off.zip started at 12/06/2017 23:33:49
The time stamp in explorer still is on 23:31… perfect, no overwrite
Now still with the param OFF, I change something to the soure file and saved it : file time stamp 23:44
Perfect, the zip archive is overwritten with the changed source.
Final test for the zip : a second run will show the time stamp of 23:47… no overwrite, perfect
CONCLUSION FOR AN ARCHIVE WITH ZIP COMPRESSION : parameter overwrite ON/OFF works perfect
Now the tests with a backup archive with PA COMPRESSION contains a BUG.
If you activate or disactivate the overwrite parameter, the archive will ALLWAYS BE OVERWRITEN !!
I changed the .pbs to create a .PA compressed backup, with the parameter overwrite OFF
First run , archive created with time stamp 0:16
Second run : source file unchanged, parameter overwrite OFF, the time stamp changed. The archive is OVERWRITTEN !!!
The Archive option in the .pa is empty ?
Zip is filled in
