Separated incremental/differential backups without using archive attributes

Post by nvx »

Since attributes are available only for files accessed directly through Windows file systems, I was wondering why one cannot create separated incremental/differential backups without using archive attributes to determine which files must be copied to the destination? Personally, I would be willing to sacrifice a bit of time to compare file time stamps across multiple separated backups instead of having to rely on archive attributes.

If this has not yet been requested (I have not found any such feature request here on this forum), could you please consider making separated incremental/differential backups available also without using attributes?

Thanks.

That's exactly what happens if you uncheck "Use archive attributes"
