.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
thanks for the details, checking this one out
Confirmed both, logged in. thanks very much! :)
just checked 85 and 86, seems to work fine.
Would you mind sending us the pbs script you are using to support and we will try with that
No problem, it’s on the way up
thanks for sending it @pirrbe
We tested and confirmed it occurs when Queue/testing it turned on
logged in for fixing. thanks again!
