Newbie - Need brand new full backup twice a day


Recommended Posts

I have a dataset which requires a complete full backup (not normal) twice a day.

Once at Lunch and once in the evening.


The program changes the data is such a way that files are altered without changing file dates or attributes. I need to be able to restore from either the morning or evening backups from any day of the week.


Can this be done? TIA-TOMG smirk.gif

Retrospect looks for the Name, Size, Creation Date and Time as well as the Modify date and time to see if a file has changed. If your software does not modify this criteria for the files then you will need to backup using the following methods:


You can do either of these:


1) Copy data using the "Archive" option rather then "backup"


2) If you choose to do a backup, go to Options>More Choices>Matching and uncheck the top matching box.


Both of the above options will force Retrospect to copy all files even if they have not changed the above attributes.
