NTBackup still uses the archive bit for increment & differential backups, it also clears the archive bit on a full backup. Since this is what we use to backup our CVS files, I'm not to keen on having to do full backups just to get all the CVS files. If it's NTFS, you can use another stream... :-) Tharen -----Original Message----- From: cvsnt-dev-bounces at cvsnt.org [mailto:cvsnt-dev-bounces at cvsnt.org] On Behalf Of Tony Hoyle Sent: Friday, April 23, 2004 9:02 PM To: cvsnt-dev at cvsnt.org Subject: [cvsnt-dev] Does anyone use 'Archive' bit on files any more? I know from history it used to be used to do incremental backups (windows sets the archive bit when you modify a file). I've not seen it used for a long time... anyone else? I'm using it at the moment as temporary storage of the executable bit. At the moment I'm not sure whether it's worth trying to write extra code to set it on the client, or just leave it... don't want to fubar anyone's backup procedures though.
