Archive only changed files?

Post by shane1800 » 22 Jan 2005, 18:36

Hello,

I'm uploading a large zip archive by FTP. How can I make the second backup only upload a zip of the changed files rather than a completely new zip? I played with the inlude only if archive and clear archive attribute to no luck.

Also can I use the copy function and have the individual files ziped and password protected?

Yes you shold use these flags and set them. There is "No luck" because first time you must haven't used celar flag and all files is considered new on the second start. So If you set these flags first time you have full backup but after all archive flags is cleared and second time archive will be contain only changed files.

No. APBackup isn't support this feature.
But it's look useful and I think this feature will be implemented in new versions of APBackUp.
