New v7 backup format--timing, conversion and risk
I installed v7, because it was available, and in the hope it would fix a problem where a scheduled backup runs, even when 'Run missed scheduled plan immediately when computer starts up' is unchecked, if the computer was switched off at the scheduled time. See Run missed ..
. Off course it was not fixed! :angry:
To add to the pain, my existing scheduled task errored after the upgrade to v7 with 'The specified path is invalid'. I am using a Synology NAS as the destination. I created a case for this with the initial response being that it was a known problem! :brow:
I will create a separate forum post discussing this in more detail.
Today I created a new format backup, which worked perfectly. I particularly like the option of Restore Verification, as the main problems with backups, is that the restore is not easy to test, and you only find out there is a problem, when you are in trouble.
So, at least for my environment, installing v7 meant I was forced to use the new format. I have not tried a new backup plan using the old format, as yet. :wink:
