I am running APBackup on a couple machines. Currently I am having trouble with our backup drive (Drobo. Would not recommend. About to send back the 2nd one) where it will just drop off and not be recognized by the host computer. My question is with the Archive in APBackup. I also run another backup program on another server that when it archives the file to a folder locally, it is already archived with the correct extension. So when the backup drive comes back up, it resumes the copy, or sometimes I have to manually copy it, from the archive folder locally to the backup folder on the Drobo on another machine. I can even open the backup from the archived folder. However I notice with APBackup that when it archives the file locally, it saves it as a bunch of .tmp files and not the .zip files. The logs note that the drive it wants to write to is gone and just errors out (because the Drobo is a POS). But what about when that backup drive comes back up? How do you get those tmp files over to their backup destination all zipped up when the backup drive comes backup? Or is that backup now no longer valid and lost?
The version I am running is 3.5.5411
