Tekkanano Posted March 18, 2002 Report Share Posted March 18, 2002 When restoring to a location using Retrospect Server, I want the program to add/delete/replace files and folders in the restore location, right now the program only add/replace, but it does not delete. This would be a REALLY great feature, and it would save me SO MUCH TIME!!! Please do add it in your next version. Here is an example of what I'm talking about. I have 5 files & 1 folder on Computer1 in the folder BACKUP and 5 files & 1 folder on Computer2 in the folder BACKUP. Computer1 ----------------------------- hello.txt game.doc \folder\world.cfg blueboy.mp3 cover.jpg Computer2 ----------------------------- helloworld.txt game.doc \folder2\world2.cfg blueboy.mp3 cover.jpg I'll backup Computer2 to a backup file and then restore that backup file on Computer1. When I restore to Computer1, I want the backup file to delete hello.txt & \folder\world.cfg on Computer1 and add helloworld.txt & \folder2\world2.cfg from the backup file into the BACKUP folder on Computer1. Version 5.6 will only add/replace, in other words I would have 7 files & 2 folders on Computer1. I want Computer1 to look exactly like Computer2. I understand that I can delete the BACKUP folder on Computer1 and just have the program restore it, but my point is about saving time. This is a small scale example, think about the thousands of files that I have to deal with!!! This is the same idea with the IncrementalPLUS backup feature, but I would like a IncrementalPLUS restore feature (nice name to add to your program feature list)! Thanks for reading my suggestion, and I hope you guys over at Dantz would implement this feature as it will save me lots of time and I bet this will help many other people too. You guys really have a great program!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
