Incremental Backup only runs on renamed files

Post by lgwebforun »

Incremental Backup only runs on renamed files

If I change the contents of a TXT file, for example, without changing the file name, it is not backed up.

The backup only occurs if the file changes folders, or if it is renamed.

Any idea what could be causing this?

Are you using the archive attribute method? If so, is the source on NTFS or on some non-native (like Linux) file system?

Hello, Thanks for the feedback.

YES: The "Use File Attribute Logic" option was enabled.

YES: The source and destination were in NTFS.

Can you check manually if the archive attribute of the file is changing automatically to "set" after changing the text and saving?

The file attribute. Right click on some your source file and select properties. Select then Advanced and see if the "File is ready fo archiving" is set. It should be set for the file to be backed up.
