One file never compares


Recommended Posts

Recently (possibly since updating my Nvidia drivers) I always get one file that does not compare. The file is always C:\Windows\Help\nvcpl\nvwks.chm. This happens on more than one backup (ie one to disc, and one to DVD).


See the following log as an example:-



+ Normal backup using Disc Backup at 07/09/2008 16:55

I am running Vista Ultimate 32bit SP1, and Retrospect Professional 7.6.111 with Hotfix

It's possible that this file contains logging information or something else that in the 17 minutes it takes to back up your files has changed since the backup was taken. I wouldn't worry about that too too much. Check the timestamps on that file and see how frequently it changes size and modified date.
