Open file backup - file modified date not changed


Recommended Posts



I'm using retrospect with open file backup to back up some msde database files. These files remain always open, so the modified date is not updated on a daily basis.


In my current backup, the database files are not backed up because the modified date is unchanged. Is there an easy way to force retrospect to perform an open file backup on these files regardless of modified date ?


I'm currently using SQL to dump a daily backup file, but would prefer the belt and braces approach of backing up the actual files themselves as well

Define the parent folder of the databases as a subvolume. Then create a seperate backup script that backs up only that subvolume. In the options of the script turn off matching. This will force Retrospect to backup the full contents of that folder every time.
