Incremental Appleshare Backup Selector update

Recommended Posts

I thought I should update people on my experiences with the work around for the Appleshare Incremental backup problem. I posted the following several weeks ago as the work around I was using (based on a recommendation by our moderator).

It seems to work just fine, but with one small glitch. The glitch is that if you should recycle a backup set and then run the script again, it will not perform a full backup, it will just backup the files that have been modified after you recycled the backup set. You will need to create a second script (one that doesn't have a schedule) that does the full backup. After that, you are fine.
