Backing up files from a Windows 10 network share

Post by throughtheline »

I am backup up the files from a Windows 10 p2p network share to a local external USB device, which all works fine, except it backs up everything every time, rather than only those files that have changed, so I am assuming the archive attribute isn't being set ? Is there any solution, other than moving the backup to the PC where the data is ?

The archive attribute needs to be cleared and if the share is read only that is not possible. Change the permissions of the share or use the "non-attributes" method.
