Empty Folders being copied

Post by inhops » 19 Jun 2011, 04:59

I am doing an incremental backup using FTP. Only 8 were changed and only 8 files have been uploaded, but the whole folder structure is being uploaded also - 496 folders!!! Is there a way to set it so that only the folders that have changed files get uploaded?

This can be done with the FTP folder as additional folder in the "COPY FILES" mode.

You should select "Backup mode"="Copy files" and configure main
backup folder to the local drive. Configure local backup folder
without using "date format". And the option "If destination
archive with the same name already exists" = "delete old

Then configure the "Upload to FTP" panel.

In this case first APBackup creates temp local folder with
incremental backup on the local drive (without empty folders) and
then copies this temp folder to FTP server.
