Don't want a full Backup

Recommended Posts

is it a correct behavior, that Retrospect 6.1 (MacOS X) starts a full Backup after changing permissions on the backup-source-drive?


This seems like a loaded question, and it would be _much_ more helpful if you posted specifics about your experiences and observations.


But, by design, Retrospect stores POSIX permissions in its Snapshot. If the _only_ thing about a file that changes is its permissions, Retrospect will not re-copy the entire file, but will instead update the Snapshot with the correct inode information.
